I knew this wood was flawed when it was resawn...But for some reason I went ahead and used it anyway....I bent these sides to see if this it could stand bending without cracking ?? and the bending and bookmatch was successful..and then I was curious to see what it would look like with the FP on..And it turned out to be quite amazing.
Is it just me or can you see a U-boat out there?

I think if you were to say you saw the face of Christ you could get some international news coverage and the bidding would go REALLY high!

I think that's Bali Hai in the distance with a flaming tropical sunset behind it. :D

Yeah, in the first pic, he's right there at the top, looking down on the U-boat. That one might excel at gospel tunes....in German :D

Wow!! That one looks good! Yeah, You could be watching it for a while and probably your mind would think about a sunset reflected upon a quiet sea... Well at least to me.

It looks even better in the flesh, just received it in the post this morning and it is simply gorgeous.

I can only apologise for playing so badly on such a beautifully crafted instrument. My thanks to you and Mrs Timms for your hard work in making it.
