And the other pics, look at the size of that watch. Hilarious. If they were as small as they seem, what good would they do? Well one might be on offer in Hollesley, I hear there are all sorts of gullible people attending this year.

I am increasing the speed in the shop, but I've decided to build one at the time. Keeps my head clear.
The finishing bits may overlap, but the goal is to not start number 50 (or 52 really since the unofficial 50 and 51 are under way) until number 49 has a few coats of shellac on.

But this is number 48 after some rapid progress with the scraper. Fret slots are cut, and the wood where the nut goes is cut away with the Mother of all Chisels. Now I'm drilling the pilot holes because I need to hang it up. The neck'll get a couple of coats of shellac before the frets go in.
But this time I'm gonna glue the bridge before finishing the box. I'm not convinced of my ability to scrape off the shellac where the bridge goes. So I'll take my chances French polishing around the bridge instead. (All other finish options are on hold indefinitely.)

And I'm glad I never ever ask for money prior to building.

Hopefully it'll arrive during the week, and then I'll try it on one or both of these. Otherwise they only need nut slots.
And I have absolutely no idea who'll get these. Maybe someone rich, as I'm skint.
