Spent a few hours in Ron Girdis’ workshop this evening.  He helped me with burnishing my cabinet scraper (the best little tool in the toolbox).  I continue to work on improving my binding skills, and the aggressive scraping I’m doing now is due to not quite getting the bindings fitted properly  the first time.

I scraped away, and am getting closer to a nice finish.  What follows is the guitar with generous swabbing of Naptha to give it the appearance of a finished lacquer.
