I just received some wood that was detained for inspection. It passed, and now it's here.
I ordered some cello ribs that would be a better match for one of my cello backs.
I also ordered some violin necks. Now that the wood has arrived, and now that my
latest violin is ready for varnish, I am starting a violin and a cello.
I also finished the violin repair that was needed after a soundpost went through the top.
The customer is very pleased with the result. Cosmetically, it's very close to perfect
and the violin has managed to maintain is characteristic big, warm tone.
