Some knot free fast grow spruce eg (UK grown) would also work I think as would a firm grade of balsa.

Do you have a suitable bit of Western Red Cedar for sale Theo? If you say yes I'll contact you 'at work' so to speak.

That sounds beautiful. I bought a Le Touptit in June and its wonderful. I wish this was 12 months hence, I'd definitely want this. I hope it finds a good home.

Having had a good look and play of both these boxes the Sandpipers win out by a mile on playability and manufacturing quality. I have it on pretty good authority they are made in the same factory and close examination seems to bear this out. They are so very, very similair, on the outside at least. They did go up in value a lot after they had been on the market for a while. There is no way I would sell mine, no matter what fancy box I may buy in the future.

 I have been told that the Sandpipers were fettled by the Music Room people before they were sold whereas the Sherwoods just come as they are when they leave the factory. I didn't find the Sherwood very playable though the sound was OK, barring a couple of buttons which were a touch louder than the rest under the same pressure. Bellows were stiff and buttons got stuck etc I can well believe this about the fettling/ non fettling.

Yes the air springs went on our Sandpipers ( myself and my better half both own b/c, though I have a prototype) But once this was sorted the box has been very playable with a decent sound, we really played them for hours most days and they have stood up well to this over a good few years now.

Thanks all for your responses. @rileycat- I never thought of using enamel.  I was a bit concerned I'd have to get all sorts of expensive paints and primers etc. I'm ordering some bright enamel paints today. I might go overboard and stick some rhinestones on as well la dino baffetti.

rileycat, if you're really having problems posting a picture, I'm sure any other member would be only too happy to do it on your behalf. All it needs is for you to send it to them via ordinary email, and Bob's your uncle!
If you want, you can send it to me, for instance.

Ihappen to have a CFG Saltarelle with original case.  Plays way better and easier than my Mengacini 2 row.
Need to get 900 lbs for it.  It belongs to my wife that can't figure out how to play it.  Thanks, Fred

I've been meaning to learn this for a while, and it's got a name in it...
Hardings Folly's Hornpipe from the William Mittell book.
And inspired by Martin Ellison's terrific version of same elsewhere on YouTube, from which I pinched the idea of the bass runs.

I hope some of you enjoy them.
