Stunning. I hope it will sound as good as it looks.

75% done with the FP.

Pictures are with and without the armrest. I suppose it does upset the symmetry, but it keeps the forearm off the top leaving the French polished area nice that might be otherwise marred by heat and sweat. Feels nice too.
What do you think?

The armrest is so well done that it's inclusion adds another appealing element to the appearance. Plus, it serves a purpose.
Everything beautifully executed!
