The top of 'cello #5 is hand-carved of tight grain Engelmann spruce sourced from MVS in B.C., Canada. It features some nifty natural striping on treble side.
The back is carved from a piece of highly flamed colorful, striped and spalted quarter-sawn Western Maple which was milled by our friends at Urban Lumber in Springfield, OR, from a tree that was taken down just 2 blocks from our home and shop!
What a little cutie-pie! Here it is playing outside with it's big buddy Seth Kimmel bass #66.
