My first attempt at makeing this project, (requested by my wife), was a dismal failure. I had chosen the wrong type of wood and used a blade that was too large for the delicate fret cuts. After recieving some very good advice from Sheila Landry, the designer of the pattern, and making some minor modifications to the pattern this is what I came up with. The peice is 7/16” maple finished with a varnish of BLO, mineral sprits, and Poly. I am very pleased with the results and more importantly so is my wife.
