  1. Not sure who does rentals these days but have a look at The Soundpost and Remenyi. Both are downtown Toronto.
  2. A Batta. The Photos do a nice job but seeing this cello first hand is something else - in spite of the dim lighting in the met gallery
  3. https://maestronet.com/forum/index.php?/topic/350137-repairing-missing-splinters-chunks-where-belly-was-glued-to-the-ribs/&do=findComment&comment=952596
  4. Was chatting about this in another thread about restoration I suspect the off the shelf stuff is a little to course for restoration but might be good enough for scanning arches. Great read over in this thread from @Jerry Lynn
  5. As always - I love your varnish (looks nicer than many originals i've seen)
  6. I do it the way Neil Ertz illustrated in his article in the Strad a few years back. Block plane and a bit of patience
  7. Geez a 1-5% error rate for scan/stitches from the new iPhone is much higher than I was expecting. Ok for scanning one's living room, not so good for miro meshes. your meshlab workflow sounds practical solution. Thanks for sharing.
  8. A lot has changed in the last couple of years. Latest gen iPhone, Fusion 360 and a micro CNC router + a bit of time and perseverance will get you there for workflows you described above. Not bad for a $2-3K investment. I spent most of my adult life working at Autodesk and sat next to the team writing the sectioning code for 3d printing in Fusion. (I also worked on the rendering team). I highly recommend Fusion 360 it is free to learn but you'll need to pay now to print anything - even still the cost is nominal compared to the type of restoration work being done.
  9. An entertaining, yet somehow informative reply Jacob.
  10. You can 'watch' one being made here by the man himself (Roger not Guad). @jacobsaunders - have you come across one of these 'hulky' violas? Curious if they make a good model for chamber music.
  11. The long B form. Photos can be found at the luthier's library. There are two posters published by the strad magazine that feature long period strads Muir-Mackenzie - Hargrave article 1694 ‘Benecke’
  12. This is the most logical statement I've heard about why the Messiah stayed in the Strad shop. Wish there was a like feature in this forum - would save time typing.
  13. That is the Del Gesu Chardon Pochette - photo by @Bruce Carlson One has to wonder if all Guarneri del Gesu corners started out this way. I find it quite attractive
  14. nice colour Mike - your don-torrefied spruce reminds me of the nice cinnamon colour spruce turns after a decade or so of oxidization.
  15. Beautiful as always - so well balanced - love your varnish!
  16. Thats it!. Very strange that they didn't show up in the regular google search
  17. I think there is a video kicking around of James Ehnes playing the Fulton collection - the video featured really nice turntable views of each instatement. I cant seem to find the Lord Wilton video online however
  18. You should be able to order a toothed blade for your 60 1/2 directly from Lie-Nielsen. Just call them. I've never had a problem with regularly spaced tooth blades. A properly honed LN toothed blade will leave a near mirror like finish on your ribs if you back it in far enough on your final passes.
  19. Wow - I love seeing your work in progress. That is some serious productivity! Thanks for sharing
  20. As a first time maker, could do a lot worse than scaling up the arching drawing in the Sacconi book.
