|Top & Bottom Panels|
Saturday and Sunday saw the Sapele panels for the Celtic Flute case getting their initial finish coats. I think they look very "musical" if that's possible. The ribbon grain of the Sapele lends itself to a classical look you'd associate with a piano or other stringed instrument. Currently it has the initial coat of Danish Oil sanded in with 320 grit wet/dry paper and the first of 4 top coats which are also hand sanded with successively finer grits of paper ending with denim.
As for the inside of the case it's in the initial stages. Here you can see the parts dry fit together to get the dimensions correct. The chrome object you see is my sizer -- aka a 1 1/2" socket!
