Keyed fiddle on the go

More pics of the latest keyed fiddle, awaiting the last couple of coats of varnish, with tangents, bridge and tuning pegs to be carved next

Single row of keys but multiple tangents on each key as found in some older instruments.

Hole on the treble side of soundboard is for the through-the-heart style of bridge where the treble foot passes through to the back of instrument and acts as a sounpost. Something found in old crwths and similar instruments.
