I just basically rub in my regular oil varnish but after it's pretty tanned 

Just UV tanning? 

Very nice outline!

And are you mixing pumice/POP into the varnish? Did you feel the recent earthquake? My relatives in the Boise area sure did.

Great work!

Yes the earthquake really got some attention here too ! I was running a noisy router and didn't feel it unfortunately . I actually don't put any pop in my varnish but soak the end grain of the maple on the scroll and heel and the edges and end arching of the top very well with turpentine before rubbing in the varnish . It takes some trial and error to not to burn it with over penitration . I like what it does to the flames though .

I absolutely love the Alard Amati and tried to capture the Alard in the outline and corners but it is full size . I followed a grand pattern Amati as far as width and length . I then used del Gesu type arching in the hopes it would have more projection than an Amati.

I like the "halo" wear under the bridge feet.

Yes, and love the scroll, back, and the varnish, beautiful work!
