Oval No. 21

Another of the Flat top series, this one with a raised fingerboard. These images really show the top well and it's possible to see how closely spaced the annual rings are - it really is great top material.  Because it is salvaged and has nail and bolt holes to work around, I've only been able to make these flat top instruments; no carved tops.
