    it usally tells you where you buy it, I bought the dye Wood Dye - Aniline Dye 5 Color Kit - Wood Stain Powder and althoght it was exccelent colors (you mixed them with water/alcohol ) I still had issue with splotchy look so I went with Vernici Liuteria different varnishes for my next violin.

  4. Workshop space Chicago - moving

    I don't know anything about where you live now beside what you shared, is it a rented place or a owned? if it was me I would not get rid of my place where your currently at until I test the water where your going, it might not go well and you would have your current place still there.from Tennessee to Chicago is two complete different worlds. reminds me of the Beverly Hillbilly's show.

  9. Violin ID and Restoration Tips?

    FoxMitchell, I used your bassbar removing trick on a violin plate I was carving, I saw that the glue joint was not going to work, somehow my edge joiner got its adjustment out and also I did not do the light test good enough. I should have used a brighter light. the soaking took 2 days and it fell open on it's own. I had to use water on both ends to get the water to wick across. Now to see how I will get these edges fixed. One luther told me to use a sanding board. so when you do your violin joint use a very bright light so you see no light what so ever. My first violin I had no trouble. knowing me I might have used my edger table for a anvil

  14. Flood Damaged/Moldy Instruments

    I agree, we us UV lights to kill bacteria in sugar tanks (they just blow the air from around the UV) and I also hear they have them on airplanes in the bathrooms

    Well Thanks. LOL if you using it for all the wood then that must be some Awesome wood. I remember seeing someone bending the board a lot and it did not break, looked like rubber wood
