    I did this one today. Hand rubbed burst, scraped binding, and sealed. It was a good day.

    You hit it out of the park on this one Skip. I like how the white lamination can be seen through the tortoise brightening the side view as well as the definition it gives to the top where it joins the dark perimeter of the top. I’ve been playing with this effect on tortoise binding with a white or red inner lamination.

    Lane,
    Curly redwood. This top is very soft and needed to be carved about 25% thicker than spruce. The result, in the white was a really warm gentle response -- it'll will never be a jam banjo-killer, but sure sounded nice to me. Looking forward to hearing it finished!
