Fiddle Finally playing!

I have had more setbacks and side-tracks on this fiddle than I care to remember! I seem to have been on the sick or injured list for about four of the last six months. Not a very productive time. But it is finally done. It was a long pull and pretty discouraging at times....

However, here is the fiddle:

There are still some varnish touch-ups to do, but it is essentially complete.

Back of completed Oliver Five String Fiddle There's the back--not quite as flashy a flame as the last one, but still very nice, in my mind...from the same log, too.

Here's a closer look:

And the scroll:

I am grateful that it sounds good, after so long a wait. It has been pretty discouraging.

Marylhurst University Instrument Show is May 3rd and 4th...please come and try out the instruments!

Thanks for looking.
