Hhmm, I've had a fiddle with image size which seems to have helped.

Hi Mem - I've still got a lot of varnish work to do yet but am hoping maybe in a few weeks it will be ready for an outing.

Thanks Paul - it's funny but in the picture the thread looks whiter than it does in the flesh. I'm pleased with the understated look it has.

Cheers
Steve

Next build is a Chapman 550/600 hybrid. They share the same butt - I have just whipped the butt section today and have built a 600 tip. I will be building a 550 tip in the future.

Here is the butt so far...

That looks really good, nice dark cane and I like your choice of silk too.
