Secondly, I have made some progress on the pegbox - I'm quite pleased with the bear, even if he does seem a bit stern.
And lastly, I have been bidding for (and have just won) a baby milk warmer on e-bay. "Why?"you ask. Well, I will be gluing the gittern together with hide glue, and I will use the warmer to keep the glue at the right temperature. It's a bit cheaper than buying a more traditional glue pot.
