    Re: Post a pic of your cat sleeping in your case

    Thanks for that Bob.
    It's always hard losing a pet/family member. Boris was a Ragdoll and, like Birmans, very laidback and affectionate.

    Cheers,
    Bradley

    Re: A Year With Calace?

    I would subscribe to a Leone year. I've been picking at Leone's method and would welcome the focus on the style and technique.

    Re: Bowlbacks of Note

    True enough. Apparently the Cole is built with some unique patented method. Basically thin T shaped strips of wood between each rib to connect them.

    Definately. I will probably venture out and...

    Re: Bowlbacks of Note

    I wasn't really too fussy about what wood my bowls were, but I have to admit now I think I am a fan of the maple bowls. The Calace has a much nicer range from warm to bright compared to my W.A. Cole....

    Re: Flatwound mandolin strings

    I took a look back at my orders and it appears that I special ordered the Soloist set from SBM. You could probably do the same if you really wanted to try them out. I don't remember it taking much...

    Re: Bowlbacks of Note

    I'm not sure if this counts as a bowlback of note, but I thought that I would throw it in here anyways. I recently picked up a W.A. Cole bowlback in Vancover, BC. It's in pretty decent shape, some...
