Spring 2018 Violinmaking

Violin making

Spring 2018

It’s been a busy time in the shop with lots of building. I started three instruments- a petite full size, inspired by the Alard Amati, another small full size, inspired by the Plowden Guarneri del Gesu, and a small 5-string, inspired by various lovely makers of the past, but my own model. I like to start a few projects at the same time, but then I complete them one by one as time permits. I like the focus of completing one instrument, fully immersed in the process. I try to complete a bunch of repair work and then set aside many weeks to build.
