  1. What a remarkable woman. I am sorry for your loss. It is clear that she made a difference, and touched the lives of very many people.
  2. Using your car analogy, if you wanted to learn to drive would you buy a car before your first lesson? End a analogy. Rent an instrument from a decent shop. Learn to play a bit, then try out some violins and see what you like. You might get something you like, blind on ebay, but more likely you will end up spending money on set up and still end up not sure if you have done the right thing. Wait a little.
  3. This is the Craig Tucker violin. @Chistopher Jacoby definitely varnished it with the board on. You can ask him directly if you like. He is a very fine fellow.
  4. Well there was a division of labour, but we had to use Fedex rather than a sack in a wheelbarrow to move the project around.
  5. Not sure you have my new address.

      Thanks Dwight, and thanks for the offer. It is my privilege to be able to do this small thing

  6. I have photo books for all the builders and material contributors. I have business addresses for many. PM me if you want your copy sent elsewhere or if I don't have an address. Good work folks. It really is a beautiful violin
  7. the buyer has something pretty special. Thanks to them for bidding and thanks to everyone who took part. Special thanks to Jason Price for his encouragement and generosity and to Florence Haseler for her hand holding through the auction process.
  8. Thank-you to all the participants in the project and particularly to the folks at Tarisio in this final instalment for their great advice and generosity. The buyer is going to be very happy!
  9. There is a short you tube video of Boson Mo playing it. The link is on the build thread in the Pegbox. Bidding has picked up this morning as expected. Currently sitting at $8500 which is not too shabby.
  10. It's quite a pretty case, but I would be concerned about the 'air tight' seal. The ability to vent warming (and therefore expanding) air is pretty important to stop potentially catastrophic changes in RH. I don't have them to hand, but Dmitri has published some fairly interesting data about what goes on in sealed vs vented cases as they warm up.
