Instrument Making in Canada.

A nice detailed shot of a violin (I think!) with curves everywhere. This is one (of many) areas of woodworking I've never tried and looking at it I wouldn't know where to start. I suppose like any complicated project it's just made up of lots of small, easier parts. A bit like life really.

Chris has one of my jointer planes on order and it looks as if it will be in exalted company, a fine and very usable mitre plane by Bill Carter and a high angle smoother by Sauer and Steiner. My Guess is he probably has a few more fine planes tucked away.
