Jo,
I always enjoy logging in and seeing another on of your builds. Thank you!
Do you typically find historical instruments to takes specs from, or build from available plans, or...?

The former if I can find a suitable instrument in a museum or if the customer wants it based on one.

Thanks for posting that clip Jo.

Thanks everyone for your kind words.

It's already gone to the customer, so I can't take any new pictures of it, but here is a picture of the same rose design which I carved on a renaissance mandore:
