  1. Great stuff Evan ! I always enjoy your posts ! I’m still not sittting . We arrived here in the Patagonia Chile yesterday
  2. 375 m5 without bassbar at 57 gram ? That’s great Evan ! What thickness ? What was the density ?
  3. Beautiful stuff Christian ! On the Amati did you follow his arching design with the pinched top and deep scoop and if so what does it sound like ? I’ve wanted for a long time to try attempt one
  4. Beautiful stuff Thomas ! You’re giving me the itch to build one
  5. I’d agree with Don. I’ve been chasing perfect projection measurements the last few instruments and have corrected things I wish I hadn’t only to have to redo it again. From dry Idaho summers and shipping to damp climes makes it rough to predict .
  6. Im following this with interest too because I want to upgrade . There is also a diamond sharpening setup that “never” wears out and doesn’t require water . I don’t know where I saw it
  7. There was a thread a year or more ago about how many instruments it was thought to take to make them at a professional level but I couldn’t find it . I know that quantity doesn’t prove anything but does anyone else remember or are able to find the thread ? It’s seems someone thought it took at least 30
  8. It looks dark pink as powder and turns purplish when mixed in a bit of turpentine
  9. Thanks Thomas , Yes I hope we can meet at other violin making events . I really enjoy looking at your photos !
  10. I should have taken all the photos Natural sunlight
  11. I’m wondering how the weighted scores work ? There are 100 possible points but each judge gives a score of 1-10 and the weighted score is much higher than its total .I used to know how it worked ....
  12. Thank you BassClef ! I will spend a lot of time yet looking at these very well done photos! I was intrigued with this one
  13. Beautiful stuff Christian ! In the past you’ve said you used Kremer’s cinquasia rotgold and alizarin for your red . They now don’t sell the same cinquasia rotgold but I’m wondering if you’ve tried the new stuff? Also would you be willing to share the link to those two that you like? Thank you for sharing your story ! Edward
