  1. The word on the rib is probably the Chinese character which means "outside", but rotated 90 degrees anti clockwise. Don't ask me why it's inside.
  2. I bet you can make unspectacular wood look spectacular with that ground. Not unlike what they did in Cremona.
  3. OK, I'm terribly curious to see what it is. Your ground by any chance?
  4. The front looks very elegant. Love that arching.
  5. Yes, they are. I'm assuming that is coming from how the wood's been sawn as much as from the natural growth.
  6. Thanks! It's a Goffriller model, though I understand why it reminded you of the Messeas. That is a great cello, too. When I saw it at the Cremona exhibition, it really shocked me.
  7. It's been posted here on the Maestronet, as well. But, perhaps, @PhilipKT is talking about http://www.darntonviolins.com/violinmagazine/book/UnderstandingTone.pdf
  8. That's Gobbetti the Cobbler.
  9. Thanks! Once I start varnishing, I usually get too absorbed in it to take photos (besides, my hands get super dirty), but this time I took my time to record what and how I do things. It's helped me to objectively see my own working method, which admittedly I tend not to think through deeply enough.
  10. I thought it might be interesting to show before and after photos. Antiquing isn't done, yet, and there's still more cleaning, and blending of colours etc. to be done.
  11. That fiddle looks super classy. Is the "Dushkin" your go-to Guarneri model? Do you make it with thick graduations, or do you just adjust them according to players?
  12. @Andreas Preuss, as Violadamore said, it's worth checking your Zoom setting, especially if the problem had started after we had a Zoom meeting the other night. Something similar happened to me not so long ago, though I'm not using Windows.
  13. Sorry @Andreas Preuss, that was me in disguise.
