Builder in exile

I'm with my family in Småland. Absolutely lovely surroundings. But since I've got stuff to do, I'm here with an emergency kit of tools, oil and shellac to finish Paul's piccolo and Alli's tenor.

Here's the fret slot cutting jig that I'm so proud of, clamped to the piccolo. It does have great advantages to build outdoors; the light is many times better than in my workshop.

First coat of shellac

Will it be ready for Hollesley? This is the question that haunts me; keeps me awake at night and stops me from functioning at the office.
