All Romanian wood, OldWood ground and varnish.  No extra charge to leaving tool marks showing here and there.  I'v e been asked about the purfling, its maple/pear/maple, slightly wider than the standard purfling with the fiber layers.

OP24 out soaking up some sun. I started out with tea stain, then in a container with a saucer of ammonia for about 2 hours, came out a light cinnamon brown. Then Italian Golden Ground from Oldwood (Spain). Later today, it will get a coat of refractive ground, then imprimatura minerale (maybe doratura minerale, haven't made up my mind yet), and finally varnish by this weekend. 


Now, having seen Mike Koberling's new viola ..........
