Work on the cello is moving along at a good pace. I've fallen into "retirement mode" and lost touch of time, working until 2am and sometimes not even knowing the day of the week. I'll take that as a good measure of productivity, and a side effect of giving up coffee.
This wonderful vacation is coming to an end with school starting in a few days. My goal is to have the cello box closed before then, and it looks like that will wrap up today and tomorrow. All that remains is to remove the mold, shape the blocks, and seal the inside.
Here are some photos of the cello from this week. On the left is a freshly glue-sized corner block, and on the right is the bassbar in place.
