  1. I'm wondering if anyone has photos of the Stradivarius exhibit that the Musical instrument museum in phoenix hosted a few years back. I went and got some pictures, but they're all terrible quality. My journey into instrument making started there and I'd like some better images of the exhibit. Hope someone can help out!
  2. That makes so much sense! I'm building my first violin and the short grain kept breaking off. I didnt even think about that! This board is great!
  3. Thanks for all the help. I ended up just holding it together with my hands for a couple of minutes. I don't think it turned out too badly!
  4. Thank you all for the advice! I haven't gotten around to fixing it yet, but I think I'm just going to go the hand clamp route. I have a spare neck block, so I'm prepared to start over, but I'd like to see how it glues up first. Thanks once again! I'll post pictures when it's back together.
  5. Thank you all very much. I'll glue it back up tonight. David: Yes, I was using a mallet. Live and learn!
  6. Hey all, I'm working on my first violin, and I just carved my best looking scroll yet. It doesn't look incredible, but I'm super proud with how it's turning out so far. (I'm not an experienced luthier.... or woodworker for that matter) As I was starting to hollow out the pegbox, the scroll just popped off. I accidentally knocked it off my bench earlier and I guess that cracked it. What is the proper way to repair this? Is the fix as simple as glueing the pieces together with some high strength hide glue? Thanks!
  7. I'm not the one selling them. I'm just looking for a price so I can buy them haha. Sorry if this isn't the right place for that! I've found the Guaneri book online, but I just cant find any price for the Strad anywhere. Any ideas?
  8. Hey all, First time poster. I've heard about the Hill Strad and Guaneri books for a while, and just found someone local who has them. I have no idea what these are worth though. What would a fair offer for them be?
