Have a few things to finish first, but looking forward to building a parlor with this Catz spruce I just got from Mario. When it first arrived it was still in the "fuzz" stage and I had no idea what I"m looking at till it's been sanded.
What I found after sanding was a beautiful top, great tap tone, and a whole lot of medulary rays. I'm going to have to find a special back and side set to go with this.
My camera is not the best...or I'm a lousy photographer... or a combination of both but here are a few pics of the top.
More to come as I gear up for this project.

So a couple weeks ago I was snooping around in an antique shop looking for whatever, and I came across a rough violin body, and a decent restorable violin in a case with bow. The last few years I have been tossing around the idea of building a violin. So I bought them. I can use them for reference. They were reasonable, both for around 40 bucks. The one in the case is a Jackson Guldan. The body is a Boehemian Gypsy Saxon or something. The Jackson is complete and just needs a few things. But the Boehemian one is really just for ideas and it just reeks of history. Now for the surprise. Today in the mail I receive a hand made violin plane from Padma. I am totally filled with joy and are so gracious for such a fine gift. Padmas builds have always been in inspiration and his personality is one of a kind. Thank you so much. My violin future just might get started after all.

IMHO it ain't Christmas without a train under the tree. We had an HO setup on a piece of plywood for the whole time the kids were growing up. Set up takes no time and I soldered the tracks so we didn't have dead spots. When the kids left and the tree got smaller I bought a little N gauge that was more appropriately sized. This year however I went double decker!
If you have a train under the tree please post a pic. If not, why not!
