    Thanks for showing yours Denny. It looks very nice, especially with the walnut. This is another one I copied from the magazine but that is as far as I have gotten with it so far.
    Thanks Melanie. I hope to see a completed project soon.

    Fretwork Violin

    The pattern is by Sue Mey and found in SWWC Fall 2019. I enlarged the pattern by 8% to fit 12" stock. I used 1/2" Walnut and backed with 1/4" Baltic Birch plywood. I used FD UR #3 blades and finished with two coats of spray Polyurethane Clear Satin.

    Really glad to hear you got your "jumper cables" installed. Your cardiologist sounds like a great physician.
    Do what he says for a while. That storm mess will still be there.

    It would depend on the project. I have laminated at times to add thickness and I have scaled patterns to fig a piece of stock, but going from a prescribed thick stock to thinner (on hand wood) has never slowed me down.
