The back is a very old piece of English Sycamore. Very similiar to the wood Testore would have used.
It is made with a one piece top.
I copied the scribed purfling on the back. I even crossed the inside purfling marks with the marking gauge, like the original.
I really liked the reverse gouge marks starting the fluting on this scroll.
I copied the wear on the scroll from 300 years of tuning by players.
