The progress reports
Each week we update this page with new photos of instruments in progress. The updates will usually be on Tuesday.
We hope that you enjoy seeing the progress on your instrument and those of others who have them on order.
Week ending December 20, 2004
Last week we lost our companion of 14 years, Tippy. We got her when she was 2 years old, and she was the perfect shop dog: the noise of the machines didn't seem to bother her, and she loved to chew on sticks. A scrap piece of Honduran mahogany was her favorite kind of chew toy.
