Does that have a coat of varnish on it or is that the ground drying?  

First coat of varnish over ground. Sorry for bad photo. I really don't like posting photos of varnish but here are some better pic's.

Yeah varnish is notoriously difficult to photograph.   Looking good so far.

There is only one thing worse than asking for varnish pictures: asking for an audio. 

Will you post one? :rolleyes:

I'm not a player but I'll try to find someone who can help out. Thanks for asking.

Hi E, Your ground and first coat have such a nice shine (i.e. even coat) I was wondering what your application method was and whether you are doing any flattening/sanding between coats.

Thanks,

Jim

I brush on a level coat and if varnish has enough open time I will pad with fingers and palm. No sanding between coats but I do knock down any nits.

Hey. I was wondering if you could show the front soon? I'm really excited to see it!!!

After I get back from vacation I'll finish up.

Varnish is now done. Inspired by some recent photos here I'm not going to rub down with pumice to achieve a matte finish. Instead I'm leaving the varnish straight off the brush with minimal polishing.  The viola was fun to build and I'll eventually post a sound clip . Thanks for all the input and great comments.
