  1. hahaha, I wish to live in Japan most of all, already 10 years, but still haven't reached that destination unfortunately... that's why if only possible, I'd like to get some help in words
  2. The appearance I'd like to make: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Master-model-Antique-VR-1pc-A-Guarnieri-039-del-Gesu-039-1742-034-Lord-Wilton-034-Violin-/312713182850?hash=item48cf287e82%3Ag%3AwEkAAOSw4lldOqqy&nma=true&si=3IqcAf%2FVDT9MuENY7KS3APCHDDU%3D&orig_cvip=true&nordt=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557
  3. I live in a country where we don't have any good luthier. Moreover, it's a hard deal to find a good violin, there's no music shop with normal violin (only cheap fake ones).. So I don't have any option except doing it myself. I will do it this way or another, but dunno the steps. Please don't judge me badly hahahah))) 1. As you see there are minor cracks. What material should I use to cover those cracks? Is it necessary to cover them? (pics of inside & outside below) https://imageshack.us/i/po9jreixj https://imageshack.us/i/plY0MBn1j https://imageshack.us/i/plH2Zi2Gj 2. Most of the cracks are on the ribs, but ribs are covered with additional ribs, so should I remove them, or it's okay to leave them this way? (pics of inside & outside below) https://imageshack.us/i/plSIOz4Bj https://imageshack.us/i/po33wiqAj 3. One more crack is on the neck. I think no need to do anything with it, still I took photo just in case.. (pics of inside & outside below) https://imageshack.us/i/pmXujnWtj I'm about to receive hide glue soon for it, so far, that's the only material I have for now. Now, one more important thing. When I fix them and put the spruce back I need to varnish it. I saw in few videos I found that the luthiers put coating, then they varnish the violins. Or I might be mistaken. Just need to know what materials to buy to varnish violin, how many layers of coating, how many layers of varnishing. Actually I'm not aiming to make the violin shiny, would like to make something like this (link in the comment). I hope you'll share your experience, please....
