  1. Good verses Bad Arching....

    I have only the words of the great Captain Beefheart in my head ---- "Fast & Bulbous !"
  2. Turner violin Mittenwald imported

    Just add it to your log pile.....
  3. Straight Gouges or Bent Gouges?

    Didn't think gouges were gender specific !!?
  4. I'll have to sort through all my "Chanot" family stuff & find it. Now, where did I put it......................?
  5. You're right re Joseph. Not really sure about Francois(The designer of the cello illustrated in this thread). I did compile a fairly detailed family tree some years ago with some assistance from a Chanot cousin in Paris, although this was pre-computer days......
  6. Morgana, Very interesting reply, but with respect I believe you have muddled up the Georges. The George I was referring to was the son of the GEORGES I think you are referring to....(Him being my great great great grandfather !!!) Now I'm confused !
  7. Hi Tom, Yes, the man in question was my great great grandfather. Incidentally, it would appear that it was an attempt by a self righteous violin business to discredit serious competition. They failed, and I am glad.
  8. Perhaps you'd like to enlighten us on the supposed "Uplabeling" ?
  9. Joining Spanish Cedar (cedrela oderata) casein or Hyde glue?

    Si, As I thoughto !!!
  10. Joining Spanish Cedar (cedrela oderata) casein or Hyde glue?

    Slight deviation from original topic , but does anyone think Stradivari et al would have used ready made wood glue from a supplier if it were available??
  11. Joining Spanish Cedar (cedrela oderata) casein or Hyde glue?

    Unusual comment John. I don't know how long PVA has been around, not 100 years I bet!
  12. Joining Spanish Cedar (cedrela oderata) casein or Hyde glue?

    For a permanent strong joint, why not use PVA wood glue ?
  13. The guitarviol - the best or the worst of each?

    Indeed it is. What's the Rye version like ?
  14. Wanted: CT scans of scrolls

    I know, why not just carve a scroll out of a block of maple - It would not cost a massive amount of money or time !!
  15. Violin type Nicolo Gusetto

    Nicolo Gusetto - Who he??
