Tied Frets

The top pair of strings are still missing, but I have now had a go at tying the gut frets. This mostly went well, but I had a couple of breakages (actually the knots slipped and it's impossible to reuse the piece of gut) and I ran out of material! I had to use a length of nylon string as a temporary fix for the seventh fret.

The cittern was dusted off, and I made and fitted the braces to the back.
