This one was finished yesterday for my daughter Sarah and this is #3. The inlay is her star sign.
Back and sides; leopardwood
Top ; lacewood
binding ; oak and bwb purfling.
fingerboard, bridge and headstock veneer ; wenge
inlay, abalone & maple veneer
Finish ; shellac based sanding sealer then Tru Oil
nut & saddle ; unbleached bone. We trained a Guide Dog for the Blind last year and this is one the bones he used to chew!

Cheers, Bob

Any instrument at all made for one's child is a beautiful thing... and this one is also very nice!

Sweet! Crazy what grows from soil sun and water.

Do you find tonal improvement from bone chewed by a guide dog?

Salt in my wounds. I was making one for my daughter and got a terrible flu that knocked me out a full week. Couldn't get it done for Christmas. She'll forgive me, but what irony to see yours posted today.

Very nice! I do like the looks of this.

That lacewood top looks like sycamore.
