Progress...

Made good progress today. At lunchtime, went to the wood store, and although they disappointingly no longer have all that much violin-specific (mostly guitar, and also viola and cello), I did manage to get 2 sitka tops and 2 nice neck blanks.

I also got my workbench brought inside and set up downstairs. Tomorrow I'll spend time clea

Marriage ended, new start (moved twice), major surgery, back to school, etc. My life has stabilized somewhat, including my financial situation, so I once again have the time and inclination to make musical instruments. I make music as well, and lately I've been on a bit o
