That trick worked for me too! Thanks so much.

Before, I had to right click on each broken image link and click "Open in new window" to see each picture one by one.

Today I put the Bluegrass Tool on the shelf where it will remain for a month or so, at which point I will buff it, assemble, and deliver . . . which takes about ten days, mostly to make sure it is working as advertised.

You are all welcome, I am glad it is working and you can more easily see the pics. For the rest, you can right click on them and open in a different window, but when there are a lot of them, that is not so fun.

Bruce, your photos display fine in chrome if viewed directly through your website. The problem is when a https site like the forum tries to show a http image. That's classed as mixed content and stopped by chrome by default

The D's are both curing now with what should be all their varnish on. In a month or so you will see them again. About that same time I will begin my next guitar, which is commissioned, but not completely defined yet.

Meanwhile, I am missing the two violins I made for Ben McKee, which were not only my best violin efforts so far, but also better (IMO) than any of the other 25 or so violins I own. Most days I manage to play for an hour or more, so I am trying my luck at making another as good as my last.

Here are a couple of pictures of the Maple back, one in the carving process, and the other scraped and at final thicknesses. My thanks to Al Carruth, who's scraper you can see in the second picture. I have been scraper adept for 50 years, and Al's scraper is easily the best I've used. While it works well for a guitar's various scraper tasks, it has transformed my violin making as it is an enlightened design in that context. IMO, of course.

Smile Looks splendid

Bruce, the Tool looks fantastic on my iPad (safari). All your pics in this thread are working for me! And looking yummy, too!

Salud

I've got the two D's on the shelf in the process of curing, and now my 10th violin has joined them.





Today I started a new guitar! This will be my FT-15 in MadRose and topped with yet another magnificent German spruce top sourced from Martin Guhl. The guitar will have my hybrid cutaway and the JB/2 fret path, my 1/4" disparity MultiScale. Although the design is Martin inspired, it will have a single ring rosette around a slightly smaller than typical sound hole to offset the side port's influence.

The surfaces are too unrefined to photograph well, but I won't let that stop me from trying:

Finally it's my turn to watch my guitar get built!

This MadRose/German guitar is my first commission from a luthier and I expect it to be the finest I've played. Keep the photos coming!

Congratulations Andrew! You are starting at the top, aren't you?
Perfect materials (wow that MadRose is amazing) + luthier in peak form + 50 years of experience = you are going to be blown away.

Andrew congratulations on selecting a great luthier. I own a number of guitars by Bruce and they never fail to bring a smile to my face when I play them...

The new FT-15-C-JB/2 is joined, templated, and has a rosette.
