Comments: The finish is done using violin making varnish techniques.
All the coats were applied by brush. The varnish itself and the ground, ( sealing)
were made by me. Varnishes can be acquired from .. violin varnish ltd..
In Trumansburg NY, owner is Joe Robson.
The wood has a glow and liveliness that will not show in a photograph. Even this rather plain wood took a sparkle that was most unexpected.
Last comment is the goal was to make it look like the old Gibson arch tops like the one Tuck of Tuck and Patti plays.
