That is one beautiful piece of woodworking. Impressive job. You need to post sound bytes so we know it sounds as good as it looks.

That is really nice! Interesting method for the 5th peg. Speaking of which, where did you source the peghed set?

Working simple is hard.

I am so impressed, everything just fits together elegantly.

Very, very well done, my young king.
