The cello has all of its varnish as of yesterday. Now it will dry for a few more days in the lightbox before polishing with pumice. As you can see in the photo below the varnish has a beautiful variety of texture, partly from the process and partly from the woodworking. There are some very small pin holes that are absolutely gorgeous, and I'm very keen to retain as much of that as possible. After the pumice the cello will go back in a lightbox for a few more days before it can be setup and played. Exciting!
