I had so much fun with the first one. I had to make a second one. This one for my SIL.

This one top and back fiddleback maple, sides and peghead walnut, fretboard is purpleheart. finishe the top with 1 coat of amber shellac to bring out the figure entire instrument then got several coats of clear shellac, fubbed out and waxed. I now have to go back and make some corrections on the first one.
