I am aware my pictures are not of the highest quality and do not justice to Tom's incredibly detailed work, so I wish to diversify a bit and share a couple of videos he sent me last week.

Again, closing the box. You will note the slightly inclined back brace (remember it will be a 12 frets to the body / fanned arrangement). When I asked Tom about it, he first answered "I was drunk and slipped". British humor as its finest. I finally understood that it is about evening the stiffness of the back, but well, not half as funny.

And Tom sanding the sides. Just some really cool shots about the wood's grain and sapwood:

Thanks for following!

PS: tried to embed the video, but unsuccessfully..
