Hi Roy, Sorry to hear that you can't make it to the workshop. I'm really hoping to have your instrument finished by the 14th of August so that I can enjoy the week more, however, I still need to put the final touches on Mark's instrument so I might fall just a little short. If I wasn't going to be out of town all next week on vacation, I think I could make it without a problem. Anyhow, I now have all of the woodwork completed, the bellows are finished, the reeds are all cut out but need to be assembled and tuned several times. The handstraps and thumbscrews are completed as well. The two major things left are finishing up the reeds which will take several days, and putting on the finish coats, which takes a couple of days to apply and a week and a half to cure.
