I'll post some pictures of both when I get it.
    John, i switched to leather on the contact points several years ago. The cork became unreliable to some finishes.

    We haven't retired completely. Still plugging away in the shop, but at a reduced level.

    Thank you all for the well wishes and support. In addition to the bursitis I came down with COVID last week. Some improvement but my oxygen saturation is still low. Hoping to see that clear up soon.

    Have a blessed holiday!

    Doug Iím truly sorry to hear you have contracted Covid. Itís be 7 weeks and I still have symptoms after being hospitalized for 6 days, mostly cough and shortness of breath. However Iím getting better with each passing day. Rest and stay on top of your symptoms. Especially important for young men like us. I contracted mine despite the best PPE at work from an unknown pt. Covid is the real deal. Lp

    Sorry to hear you had it too. I was pretty mild by comparison. I still can't taste or smell and my oxygen saturation is also low. I guess recovering is better than not recovering. my neurologist died from it this week.

    I had it too, we are tested twice weekly at work. Totally asymptomatic, they called to tell me I had tested positive, I told them they were kidding me, I felt fine the whole time I had to be off work. Such a variable disease, can be no symptoms to very deadly. I just hope everyone that gets it has the same lack of symptoms I had.

    Thanks for your good work, Doug. I have three, two on mandolins and one on a mandola using a viola clamp. They all look good, work great and prevent my arm from developing a permanent crease.

    Our website is still down but under construction. At least the home page shows something now. Now that I’m back in the shop we’ll see more progress to that end as well as new products underway.

    David McClung just finished this one up for a customer.
