  1. Twisted Scroll: Caused by Stress or Drunken Luthier?

    It happened once to me too (with a very similar violin actually, maybe the same?) Maybe to go around a problem in the wood, stain, worm, knot.
  2. Do you build Bergonzi?

    The viola in progress.
  3. Christian Bayon´s bench

    Viola model Nicola Bergonzi in progress (based on the "ex Peter Schidlof Amadeus Quartet")
  4. Messiah wood (again....)

    Really good job Peter, thanks.
  5. Tool marks

  6. Tool marks

    My experimentation around tool mark Cremonese instruments: on my viola ribs, it´s quite consistent with the marks on the Strad cello.
  7. Don Noon's bench

    Sounds good!
  8. so ugly it's almost cool...

    Wolf hunter.

  13. At this time, La Haye was the most important violin making competition.
  14. JB Vuillaume cello

    At the early stage of his career, he antiqued his instrument, but with time, less and less. The cellos at the end of his life, are not antiqued.
  15. Joe Robson's Balsam Ground 3

    No, you are , in my opinion, at the limit of too much colour. No more yellow! If you want a better experimentation, do it on plain maple and spruce carved, everything looks nice on a nice figured rib.
