My first and probably last musical piece. The wood was amazing to work with but getting the angles working was a real pain. I remember dry fitting it all and things were great but then when it went to gluing it up things just did not want to cooperate. The back has some nice quartersawn cherry. The other thing i will remember is stringing it and tuning it which took forever. The soundboard was a project also. i could not get spruce or redwood around here and so used some quartersawn red cedar. The first glue up failed but i got it to work in the end.
