Frank is still busy in the shop and is working on #224. The back, sides, and scroll on this instrument are made out of a nice piece of Quilted Maple from the Washington coast. He was working on a beautiful Engelmann Spruce top and had just glued the purfling in the top using hide glue when he left the shop for a few minutes. Below is a picture of the top after his new trainee (pictured above) decided to help him out. Consequently, she has been banned from the shop.
