There is a distinctive hump in this scarf joint. That shows how much walnut I carved off to shape the neck. I use handsaws, rasps, files, and sandpaper followed by steel wool to a smooth finish.
I have never used this particular head stock shape before. I think it echoes the headgear of the guys on the box.

WoW!

Doug, you are right about that.

Cockle Georgie would be a better choice.

I just checked it out Rich! Interesting song. I’ll look forward to your CBG rendition since there aren’t any strings in the Battlefield Band version.

Comment by Rich on June 25, 2023 at 3:20am

Thanks, Doug.

There is a rousing version of Braw Lads O' Galla Water on this album.

Backside double play! I know your moves now Rich. Nice work on this CBG. Lookin’ forward to the demo tomorrow!!!
