Several years ago a friend of my mentor’s gave me ten cello-sized billets of spruce cut in Colorado. I’ve only just now gotten around to resawing it, as I’ve bought a lot of wood since then and it was taking up too much space in my wood room in its unprocessed state.

I was hoping to get more cello tops out of it, but because of twists and knots, I was only able to get three, plus twenty-nine violin/viola tops. All the waste will either be purfling practice boards for my students or firewood.
