A clean job

Staves and stripes!

Giannis sent me today, 3 more photos from the final stage of the bowl's construction.
It is really amazing how much attention the luthier has put, creating the 17-staves bowl, as someone can notice by the absence of any burning marks on the clean staves,which can manifest the luthier's desire to perfection.
The capping strip (kollantza) with a beautiful pointing shape, is being also placed at the back of the bowl.

The next days Giannis will clean, scrap, and sand, inside-out the bowl, bringing the enchanting beauty of the old mulberry woods, up to the surface.
