The Making of An Mbira: May 25, 1999

It was a long weekend here in Canada -- what better time to relax in my workshop and work on my mbira. When I was a wee lass, my teachers had two main complaints about my work: I worked too fast, and I was sloppy. Well, this project is coming along slightly faster than I originally anticipated -- within 48 hours I put the bridge on the top panel and had completed the contruction of the box -- but I am proud to say all my edges line up correctly and I don't have huge gobs of glue hanging out of every corner.
