She should Love it:)

Thanks Scott! With the amazing quality and inventiveness of your work, that means a lot to me. When I'm ready I'll post something about the work I'm doing on my Fiddle #9, which will use the CNC to do the initial roughing and rib grooving for the top and belly. Here's an early test piece:

Here's my second project with Beki's heart shaped box. My mom will be 96 in a couple of weeks and I will miss her birthday, so I plan to present this to her tomorrow.

The Walnut I had left over from my Raven Desk project was only 5.5" wide so I resized the box to 11cm wide. Apart from changing the lettering for the bottom and deleting the inside lettering, the file is as Beki supplied it. No issues whatsoever!

This is great Joe! Thanks for sharing this, I hope your mother loved it :)
I too am interested to hear the progress of your fiddle :D

Great stuff :)
