  1. Hi Nathan I mean wide. Well, it will be less wider :( Thanks
  2. Hi I am making my first cello in a Strad B form My corners are 8.75 mm . I see that a little wide. How much is the average for this model, could be 8/7,5 mm ? Thanks in advance Tango
  3. Duplicate , sorry Tango
  4. Hi R. Pope Do you seal the wood before the washed linseed oil? Regards Tango
  5. Hi With this set up I was able to glue well by pressing right in the middle of the halves thickness . Thanks David
  6. Thanks Bruce. That is all I want to know. Regards Tango
  7. Hi Does cellos ribs taper follow the same criteria of violins? I am thinking 115 mm at the neck and 120 at bottom. It is an Strad model like Davidov. Not a copy. Thanks for advices Tango
  8. Hi Jacobs . Your emphasis made me abandon that idea. I was afraid about some gap could remain in the thickness of the gluing surface , impossible to see from outside (4.2mm wide). Thanks Nick and David for your replies too. David. I took from you this way of glueing from you but adding clamps. This is only an essay of clamping because I want to glue fast without errors
  9. Hi Does somebody apply hot water before glue in a centre join to swell some the wood preventing some gap? Not at the sides but in the same face to glue. My case is a cello back Thanks for advance in any help Tango

  13. Hi May differences in edge thickness change something the sound of an instrument, or the thickness is a aesthetic stuff? Tango
  14. Warming up the varnish make easy to apply with fingers like if we were thinning it with a solvent , isn´it? I saw that it dry quikiest but I don´t know if I may ruin the varnish.
  15. Hi Davide What's wrong in thinning varnish with turpentine to applying a thin coat? The only problem I found was one brand of turpentine bought in a chemical store but now I use Winsor & Newton. I made tests over a glass and W & N left minus tacky the surface when dry. I use Hidersine oil varnish. The only one I can achieve here. Sometime I use my varnish but I am a little affraid
