I’ve got the binding ledges cut, and now I’m looking at a long day of binding work. There are a lot of miters on a Florentine cutaway, and this EllieBelle also has 2 bevels! ... See MoreSee Less

What would I be without my Superglue? Nothin’, that’s what. Here, I’ve composed a short poem of gratitude:
