Nice work, the heel looks great. Here is a few pics of my first attempt. Back and sides are walnut and maple, top is black cherry. Fretboard is a continuation of the back. Originally, the glue up was one piece, that is why the maple matches so well. Just in case you want to try something like that on your next one.
