  1. Most everyone is familiar with this 2010 book. Depending on your perspective it may be lean on helpful pictures but I think we could all agree there's a lot of information in this book. Condition is near mint with light wear to dust jacket. Selling for $135, exactly what we bought it for.
  2. RARE 2003 book with SKIRA imprint also published in conjunction with Kunsthistoriches Museum Wien of Vienna. Ed. Rudolph Hopfner Dozens of high-quality photos. All text/ information in German language but the information aside you would love these photos! Sorry, those photos are only available in this book. Book is in very good condition with light damage to the corners of the cover. It was bought new and taken out and perused carefully and assiduously about twice a year. Best offer accepted. No recent sales are available for me to compare to and base a price on. If you want to see more images from the book I'm amenable to that... private message me. It's overall in very nice condition with no damage to the binding.
  3. This 1949 book was taken out of circulation from the Kansas City Public Library some years ago. It is a very rare book with only 1500 copies ever made. The Binding is coming apart a bit but all pages are in very good or better condition This book is perfect for serious collectors. Check recent auction prices. More helpful images of the book can be had if you just let me know what you'd like to see. $450 obo
  4. Probably no LA. But who knows. It would be nice to meet you too, and I know it'll definitely happen eventually. Right?
  5. Excellent condition. CDs unscathed. Includes dust cover. Several highly usable/helpful photographs and over 200 pp helpful information.
  6. These aren't violin making items (I don't know who needs to hear that but...it's veneer and you cannot make a violin with this stuff) but these are wonderful delectable and huge pieces of veneer that I am super motivated to sell for cheap. Really cheap!! Like 2018 prices. I know someone has a general woodworking project and needs Paduk veneer. Or 10 ft × 9 in. long curly maple veneer. I have a lot to unload. I have a list somewhere of all of the varieties and the sizes but for right now I'm just posting the pictures and seeing if there's any interest at all. Also, hi to anyone out there I would be saying hi to.
  7. This now-12-year-old couldn't work on his various motorbikes today like he normally would due to weather. Finally...it was his idea to work on the scroll, as it had to be. He's doing great.
  8. Dry it and reconstitute anytime by soaking trimmed tubule pieces in a little bowl of water. Then you can cut and flatten them, dry them again and proceed with whatever way you want to use them. The fact you can bring back a green color and almost elastic pliability by soaking it is pretty...interesting. right? So...uh...how's NZ? I'm gonna be honest...I can't count the times I've thought of you guys in suddenly batshit crazy NZ and been worried. Might as well ask instead, so you can say "What are you talking about...it's great here!" Then I will worry more.
  9. I got a recommendation for the Primitive Skills youtube channel because of the violin stuff I look at. And I never looked back. The youtube algorithm knows things, for sure.
  10. The overhang protects the ribs from damage too, at least a little bit.
  11. Well, sure he can, and he often is. He will prop up someone to a point but he seems not to want women at the top of the classical scene or whatever. It's a predictable trait. I absolutely do think he is sexist, but it's more insidious than insulting all women with talent and either ignoring CD releases and compositions by women or treating all women with derision. He has to show that he pays attention.
  12. I believe I clarified later that I am not concluding that he's sexist based on this one review. In fact, I didn't mention it until VdA did. And indeed, not only is it a bad review but it's a really *bad* review. You would think that if he's going to be so critical he would expect criticism right back and make it a little stronger. It's pithy and tried to cut deep without the critical scholarly heft to back up his words, and then with the one star. I think it's mean, even if others have a different definition. It's like he just refused to even bother with writing a real review. And it's so casually sexist too, because he is. Imagine him giving Maxim Vengerov one star because he didn't like the program. Imagine him doing so by way of primarily insulting his personality and intelligence rather than his skills and performance, which I think is actually what he did with this. It would never happen.
  13. Because I enjoyed it, dammit. Sometimes I just want to call an asshat an asshat. I get it out, then I can go and try to act like a normal person and not say everything I want to say. Good comment though. Before, I mean.
  14. There are other examples. https://slippedisc.com/2019/08/pathetique-for-a-woman-conductor/ Of course he's not universally horrible to women but I still think he is transparent about his bias. I think he's a bit more likely to call a man a virtuoso, and a little more likely to call a woman's playing or singing "hot". Which he has, because he's good at using his words. No, I don't think he's sexist just because he gave Hillary Hahn a rude review.
