Macica Workshop-Springtime

P1110015 (2) (Custom) Well, Spring is slowly showing itself here in upstate.  We are able to start some of our outside projects for the season.  My son, Ian and I began breaking up an old concrete foundation on top of our hill to ready the area for his training pen for his horse Adi and a new colt.

P1110188 (2) (Custom) I am also doing my best to keep up with my students in the violin class. We spent last class focusing in on the purfling and roughing out the scroll.  I hope to soon have my scroll close to finished so that I can start fitting in the neck.
