The work today at HatchSpace was primarily fitting the purfling on the viola, after final adjustment of the outline. I also began the graduation of the violin back after a bit of cleaning up the arch.
Last week I described the violin back wood as spectacular. Failing with words to describe what that means, here are a couple photos.
Several good conversations today about projects of other HatchSpace members. It feels that I don't have a lot helpful to offer on woodwork techniques, as what I do is so specialized, but wonderful exploration on wood choices and aesthetic design considerations.
