The peghead veneer

Disaster...well, not too much of a disaster. I have just glued on the peghead veneer (see below) and there's a small gap on one side. Perfection is no longer achievable. Oh well. I now have to decide between filling the gap with some epoxy mixed with some ebony dust, or binding in a fillet. I'll let you know...

As a beginner mandolin player who is really hooked on this wonderful instrument, it was really neat to find your blog. How long do you think it will be before the entire project is completed? And how did you get those wonderful photos posted to your blog? I can't seem to figure out photo posting.

I'm not really in a hurry, but I was hoping to get it done by Christmas. I took the pictures as stills on a digital video camera (they are only 420 by 680 pixels). I loaded them up using the Hello program (free & easy to download )http://www.hello.com/index.php
