Crescent Head

The head is going on with various tasks which require carefull and precision.

Summer waves…

It is always nice to reach this step, to see the main part of the instrument’s shape appear.
I attach great importance to the quality of the lamination of the 2 layers of solid wood. I always have in mind other approaches using fewer clamps, but I’m so used working this way, a method that gives me perfect result meeting my expectations every time.

Filèterie

For the Morency model, the entire linings and veneers are made using solid, non-stained wood.
For sure the veneers found on the market will simplify the task in some extent.
Unfortunately to find them at equal quality, particularly for the cut as well as the desired species, this remains the main obstacle.
