The most fiddly and frustrating part of this fiddle build has finally been accomplished – the Sound Post is in!

I won’t say how many tries it took, but I will advise that when you attempt it, tie a string to the post first – it is frustrating, irritating and downright maddening to try, drop it, and then have to fish the thing back out.

As you can see, my post still has a string tied to it – it’s not in the perfect spot, and it’s not quite the right shape on the ends so it will have to come out again, but today it’s standing!
