    Corpus almost finished. Only have to finish the edge work and scrape some things here and there. I tried the method of gluing the top as suggested by Jim Bress and it worked beautifully. No slop or mess inside and outside.

    Ah. Perhaps I was looking the finished varnish to begin with . Looks nice and toasty.

    I will be gluing the top onto the viola tomorrow. Always a fun time.

    Thank you. I'm striving to be as deliberate as I can. Of course there are still many things left to improve. The Strad model is getting linings:

    different gram strength hide glue for center joint?

    Found the clamps here too: https://www.fine-tools.com/hatagane.html

    While technically a ground, it just looks like a finished varnish job.

    Now that I see a picture of it, the highest point doesn't land on the diapason. Hmm. Should I fix this?

    Thanks Jackson. You gotta post more on your bench thread. I think we wanna see what you've been up to as well! I think you're right about the relative thickness being lesser here. Well I put the bass bar in, and it feels much better now. Nice and flexible and free to move, bit not flimsy.
  13. Bandsaw the joint and re plane it and glue it again. It may only appear to be visible on the surface but it could go deeper.

    Also I'm doing one of my least favorite activities in lutherie with the violin rib garland.
