Blog #15: Color before Scraping Binding
Hello! I have been busy in the workshop both with repairs and commission work.
The mandy that I have been working on now has the color on and will be ready for varnish soon. The next step after all the color is on, will be to scrape the binding.
It is usually intricate work because the flowing line of the binding adds so much to the beauty of the instrument. Let's face it, the F5 is one of the most beautiful designs for a musical instrument thanks to Orville Gibson!
