Back to the lute
I'm back to working on the lute now. I have fitted the counter-cap to the inside of the bowl (it has a much better shape now), and I've glued on the bridge (with hide glue, of course). I now have to do a bit of tap tuning by shaving away some of the braces on the underside of the belly (although this will, as usual be more luck than judgement!).
I also have to glue some paper reinforcing strips along the rib seams on the inside of the bowl.
