Work continues on Jannemieke’s Sellas theorbo. We’re very close to completion…
The bracing glued and shaped
And time to attach the neck extention…
The instrument is finally at its full length. Even though it isn’t the largest theorbo I’ve built (that honor is bestowed on the large Schelle Dm theorbo) the size is still impressive. Moving theorbos in a shop with a low ceiling is quite a challenge.
I hope to complete this instrument over the following weeks. Even though it is quite busy in the re-enactment and lectures department:
May 16th – lecture about instrument making for the local library
May 19-21 – Viking event Eindhoven (lyre and rope making)
May 25-27 – Slag bij Heiligerlee (Minion Press, together with The Paper Unicorn)
