#240 - What makes cestas different?

Posted on March 19, 2008 at 11:56:52 AM by Tiger

I don't mean bigger/smaller for back/front. Nor do I mean that some players might like them a bit longer, wider, deeper, etc. That's just size preference. But, for example:

What I'd really like to know how the cestero, when making up a batch for a player, is able to reproduce the subtle variations the player requests, while keeping them all 'identical'. It's a totally handmade product, after all. Just watching those guys shaving down frame pieces is awesome!

Yeah, I know. Practice, practice, practice.
