Pushing on with lute
I'm still making slow, but steady progress with the lute. Here is the peghead, made from beech wood, together with my first practice peg. This one was made from cherry, but the real ones will be turned from pear wood. I think I will make the collar on the peg a bit simpler, and make the 'pip' (the tiny button on the end of the peg) a bit rounder.
