Where was the dent? Under the fingerboard extension??
Looks great as always

Yes! it was/is under the fretboard extension...I had a cock up when gluing the dovetail neck joint...The clamp slid off the tail end of the fretboard into the top..made a nasty dent:( it is now a great instrument.

My dad was a cabinetmaker for many years in the 50-60s. He alway said that there are two kinds of craftsmen. One who
doesn't make a mistake and one who can cover-up a mistake. Well done.

Timbuck - I sent you a PM.
