Here are a couple of fiddles that I made in 1996. One is of what is called "Fiddle Back" or "Curly Maple" which has a beautiful stripped figure. The other is of "Birds Eye" maple which has the appearance of very small "knots" in the wood. the tops are both of high quality Spruce.
I include them in the carving pages as the tops and bottoms are carved not formed in a mold or in other ways.
You see the Turkey in the background.
