    Light color varnish examples?

    Well, I am not as handsome as you, so I didn't want to post a picture of myself.!

    Playing in Db?

    Yes. You could also consider tuning the top 3 strings down a semitone while tuning the G string *up* a semitone to provide a nice drone and added resonance in that key. (ADAE tuning down a semitone).

    £29.99 violin, my first. Is it unusually fat?

    Did you 'sink' the string into the bridge, or did you also shave off the top of bridge so that the string is partly sticking up above the top of the bridge (much better)? It's certainly challenging, but do-able to do this yourself, if you are good with tools.

    Minimum size plane for making centre joints

    ...and make sure that the side of the plane makes a perfectly right angle with the sole of the plane.

    Baroque bass bars

    Not disputing your statement that the bass bar is original, just wondering why you think it is?

    J.S. Bach, a temperamental guy?

    Bach admired the organs made by Gottfried Silbermann, but he hated Silbermann's temperament. It's said that Bach used to troll Silbermann by pulling out all of the stops of one of his organs, and then playing in one of the more 'out-there' keys.

    Buying fingerboards

    Have you tried the ones from International Violin? The last one I had from them planed nicely.

    Where can these Japanese mini saws be found?

    These cheapo saws (like the one linked to) often have a bit of blade that extends beyond the last tooth; this is easily removed with tin snips if you want to use it for such a purpose as cutting a mortice in the top block for a neck-- you can get right up to the button.

    J.S. Bach, a temperamental guy?

    Yup, his wife and kids are known to have helped with writing out parts.
