Wow! that’s nice! I’m on dial up, so I haven’t had time to view all pix at full resolution, but it looks really good. The details and finish look slick…an area I tend to get in a hurry on. I like how you did the case padding wrap in sections.

I actually made this for my daughter. She is the female singer in the “Roe Family Singers” of Minneapolis. This is a bluegrass group of 9 folks.

Excellent workmanship there dq2!! I live in the Ozarks and know about Bluegrass…heck I married a Bluegrasser. She plays bass in a band called “Hard Times”. I built her a dulcimer stand which I have posted here on LJ’s but am afraid to attempt an instrument. Once again excellent!!

Thank you for the many compliments. You are way too kind.
Yes, the “Roe Family Singers” have many videos on YouTube. They just came back from the National Jug Band Jubilee in Louisville, Kentucky last week.
If you are interested, the performance was streamed on the Internet. You can check out a clip here.
