Raw materials for bouzouki

I started building another bouzouki.  This bouzouki will be donated to my church, St. Katherine Greek Orthodox Church of Northern Virginia, in Falls Church, Virginia, in memory of my father, who passed away in 2004.  My father was a psalti (cantor) in Massachusetts for many years, and loved music.  St. Katherine is undergoing a major renovation, and I thought building a special bouzouki would be a good way to not only honor the memory of my father, but to help the church pay for the renovations. 

The bouzouki will have a Curly Maple body with Bloodwood stripes, Curly Sitka Spruce top, Curly Maple neck with Bloodwood laminations, Rosewood headplate and pickguard, Bloodwood plate on the back of the head stock and inlays related to the church and the Greek Orthodox religion.
