Beautiful wood. Did you struggle carving the quilted maple? The result is stunning.

Yes it is a little bit of a struggle but I kept that in mind as worked the maple. Thanks for the kind words

Exceptional - shape, wood choice, decoration. Beautiful. Any trouble bending the sides around the cutaway?

Spectacular work!! I like all of your choices especially the nice slight amber look to the back and sides and unbound f-holes. Bravo!
