A rather nice piece of Walnut if I don't mind saying so.

I joined up this lovely back for one of my Wishart Celtic Bouzoukis today.  I like using a plane to thickness as I think it makes the timber a little stiffer.  This was some tricky figure to plane!  Just lovely timber!  I set my form down to show the shape of the zouk. I think this is going to really pop with some French Polish!  Did I mention this tree had been hit by lightning?  Lightning mojo!
