Hey Devil Man, thanks for the kind words. I dug looking at your work too. The fiddle is sometimes called the Devil's instrument so of course you have to build one! Not much harder than what you've been making 'cept for the radiused fingerboard and deeper neck angle. I'm planning to post some photos of neck radiusing since I've had a couple of questions about it. Good luck!
