  1. I would expect the first word to be [BEN]EDICTUS
  2. Apart from measuring the location of the sound post in a different way, I would also consider using a more accurate ruler, because the first mm on the ruler in the photo looks like it is almost 2 mm.

    I.D A VIOLA

    This website seems to give some basic information about the maker: https://hu.museum-digital.org/index.php?t=objekt&oges=43742&navlang=en

    Violin ID #6

    Christiania/Olso would be Norway (or Denmark-Norway in 1770), not Sweden
  5. I don't think I understand, wouldn't a t-nut decrease instead of increase the already short neck length and only make the problem worse?
  6. Interesting, barber's acid, which is a weak lye solution sounds a bit contradictory... I did a bit of searching online, but I didn't find much additional information on barber's acid. Can you tell me what barber's acid consists of?
  7. Is it me, or does it look like the button is separated from the neck heel?
  8. By the way, the intention of my previous post is not to impact anyone's business positively or negatively, but to show that copying photos from a dealer's website and posting them on a forum without a link is not the best way to 'not identify' the dealer.
  9. It is often quite easy to find out where unidentified photos originate from. Just do a reverse image search on Google (images.google.com), and it turns out that the photos appear to originate from this website: https://www.benningviolins.com/Fine-Violin-Catalog-Fine-Violins-for-Sale-Paul-Blanchard-violin.html
  10. The purfling corners of the front do not look similar to those of the back at all. Could either the back or the front be a replacement, especially the back with that huge ebony button crown?
  11. In that case I think I got lucky that I ran into someone who used to run a sawmill on a violin forum Thanks for all your suggestions and I hope you have a Christmas as wonderful as my piece of beech and I have!
  12. Based on your suggestion, I think it might indeed be apple. There are some pieces with very similar figure on this website: http://hobbithouseinc.com/personal/woodpics/apple.htm, and the specific gravity of 0.83 (https://www.wood-database.com/apple/) also does not seem to be too far off compared to my estimate of 1. And it also makes sense that it isn't any tropical variety, but just wood from an apple tree from someone's back yard... So, does anyone have any (good/bad) experience using apple wood for fittings?
  13. Unfortunately, I don't know what region it is from, and neither does my aunt whom I got the wood from. I live in the Netherlands, but I think wood this dense typically does not grow around here.
