    Well we started out with beekeeper so that logically leads to fiddle fixing.

    You confirm what I thought. Don't think its worth the effort, but as a DIY project for fun, when I get the time. Like I said, I already braced the peghead years ago where it broke clean off. (Titebond II.)

    It owes us nothing right now.

    Yes, it seems to have annoyed some and rightly so, we have drifted pretty far. Just a quick plug for Wooden boat, arrived this month and lo and behold, an article on varnish making and so on. Still, 2600 hits and 60 replies aint bad. Maybe Big (woodenboat) Brother is watching...
    Perhaps the webmaster could drag and drop the whole thing to the open forum where we belong:confused:

    Oh, just leave it be. Besides, I have a fiiddle that needs repairs; where would I look for help on that, besides under Birchbarks, Dugouts, and other craft? :)

    off we go

    A pound of propolis is in the house; now to find denatured alchohol - the methyl hydrate available around here is nasty. I'll be bee varnishing next month.
    Sounds like I'm stuttering:D
