Welcome to the last day of May.  Finished binding the peghead with abalone and ebony (live together in perfect harmony).  Drilled for tuning machines with the center pair being a bit inside of the line to compensate for the severe angle of the outside strings.


Saturday and Sunday was primarily routing the body to accept the binding and purfling and then installing.  Suffered several cracks to the binding and needed to do some additional clamping to bring the cracks down flush.
