  1. B&G Viola Cradle

    Yes, I made two for violins. I am being lazy and just want to buy one.
  2. B&G Viola Cradle

    Thanks. Shipping from Italy is a killer. Dov Music has the Viola one in stock that is similar to the violin one International has. Will likely go that route Was hoping to find someone who had one of B&G's they never use, not likely but you never know.
  3. B&G Viola Cradle

    Anyone have a Bogaro & Clemente Viola Cradle they would be willing to part with? Howard Core is out of em, told me likely be a couple months before they have one.
  4. CAD Which program(s) do you use?

    Anything that will allow you to perform basic geometry functions and print to scale should work well. Its all lines and arcs. My opinion on handy functions to look for: (no idea if every drawing style program has them or not) Ability to crop a circle to create an arc segment, ability to offset arcs and lines at specific values. Being able to pick or snap to intersections and draw perpendicular lines. Being able to enter metric values really helps too. I use a stripped down version of autocad since I already have it for my day job as a Professional Land Surveyor. Wouldn't necessarily recommend autocad, but the principles are all basically the same. Often times different function names, commands or steps, between different software to accomplish the same thing.
  5. VSA magazine The Scroll

    I love the scroll! You are doing a great job. I do not have the knowledge, wisdom or experience to be able to contribute to it, but, I sure hope that those that do, continue to.
  6. Saving the mold

    Mr. Sora has a good video on how to do this. Its the way I do it. Both sets of linings glued in.

    Mine came via fedex
  8. New Book Arrives! Tuscan Strad

    Received mine today. Love these books. Cant wait to see which one is next and have time to digest this one.
  9. Frog first rehairing question

    I usually go with something like the length of the mortice. 5-6 mm depending on the bow and the season. To the back side (frog side of the knot) thats the way I have been doing it, however I am always willing to be corrected. That is with the hair wet.
  10. New Book Arrives! Tuscan Strad

    Waiting for mine with baited breath!!
  11. Anyone know of a good bow rehairer in SW Missouri?

    Sent you a message. Sounds like you are in Springfield. I am in Flippin, Arkansas, if its not to far I could help you out.
  12. Almost Hopeless Violin

    I have noticed some of the ones with no corner blocks have through necks and some have neck blocks? Same camp different time or different camps altogether?
  13. Almost Hopeless Violin

    Great! Read the info you had shared from a previous discussion. Makes sense to me. Was there a school or style of making that at one point used an outside form and did not use corner blocks? While nothing is always certain but is it a pretty good bet then that no corner blocks most always is built on back without form?
  14. Eat your Heart out Stradivari

    Believe the website says New Jersey.
  15. Almost Hopeless Violin

    Possibly, my understanding has been that it usually means outside mold.
