You must have endless patience cutting those roses.

It would seem a bit disrespectful of the chap in the painting to be using another instrument as a footstool!

Joe I have just looked at your database of string instruments and it is fascinating. Must take a huge amount of effort, congratulations.

Thanks for your kind words. My understanding is the item being used as a footstool is the case. At least that was my interpretation, hence why I gave the back a slight arch like that.

Wow. Nice. I found a peg supplier and a rosette supplier when I was considering the Spanish Vihuela. Really fine work. Beautiful instrument.
