Just one info about the violin drawing ,
is it your invention?
Hi Francois, I wish it was my idea but unfortunately I'm not creative enough to invent that. I can't remember the person's name. He posted on MN a long time ago a link to the instructions. I printed the instructions and followed them to make the drawing. He has a website where he sells the instructions. I'll try to find it for you. To be honest I think your drawing method is simpler and therefore probably more likely to be historically correct. There is also another drawing method other than this one that uses a three bar linkage that is really interesting also. It exactly makes the C bout curves with one smooth drawing line which is really interesting when you see it for the first time. I'll try to find a link to that one also but it's difficult to understand the instruction on that one.
Del Gesu photo. That's a nice color photo you posted in the pegs and buttons thread. Is there any chance you could post more of that instrument? or send them privately? I would like to see more of it.
