This took a while to finally get finshed, but now its strung up and sounds good. based loosely on the Lyon and Healy shape influenced by a D'Aquisto photo.
The head has an optical illusion made with maple and mahogany stained black, Top is Adirondack and and back sides and neck are maple, top binding is alternate ebony maple pieces...back and neck have laminated mahogany/maple strips. neck is reinforced with square rod...

Interesting instrument, Bing.
I'd like to see larger pictures as this style of instrument is of particular interest to me.
Good job.

here's a sound file. Excuse the poor playing but it gives a idea of what it sounds like

Thanks, Bing,
I could barely hear those, but it sounded pretty good to me.
