I found the video about the icecream heel joint very interesting. Do you have any close up pics of that type of joint?

the woods on the neck are
barrel appears to be cherry
heep is maple
the key was spruce.

the new key will also be made of spruce. I find it amazing that there are no tool marks , the lines are crisp and sharp. Art all I can say.
