That fretwork looks amazing, and very similar to Dean's ebonised longcase.

The fretwork is ebonized. It was my first attempt at ebonizing. Truly amazing how you can dip a piece in, pull it out unchanged and then watch it darken in minutes.

Here is the piece before and after ebonizing. I added a simple rounded bead board-like frame, which I think adds depth and sets it off nicely. I included the backing piece cut to size for Bruce, but agreed with him that it was too light to match the case. Better too light than too dark.

happened to walk by the guest bedroom today mid-afternoon... fretwork looks pretty good in the afternoon sun, yes?
