Wall cabinet for a fiddle and four bows. The fiddle is a 25 year old Roth. The timber is Surian Cedar, Pine back panel and Fiji Mahogany draw front. This was one of three, one I sold, one I traded for a very good viola and an even better bow. Weak oil for colour, hand frenched.

Wow – beautiful cabinet. Love the tenon joinery. It makes me think. There is enough room in that cabinet to install a little speaker under the fiddle support. It could play a note that will keep the instruments played in. Just a crazy thought.

-- Thanks for all the lessons!
