  1. Hello everyone! Last summer a friend of mine reached out to begin liquidating the workshop of her late husband, who was a luthier. In this round of auctions there is a large amount of violin and viola wood, inclduding backs, necks, ribs which will be included, that was purchased some time ago and has continued to age. At some point in the future there will be auctions for cello wood as well. These wood were purchased at International Violin, in Baltimore, MD, Old World Tonewood in WV, and wood ordered from Gleissner Tonewood, but a large portion were purchased at International Violin and as such have corresponding product numbers. That being said, the auction will be split up into two weeks, with tools and various violin and viola templates. Week One May 15th, 2020 7:00PM (EST) - May 22nd, 2020 7:00PM (EST) Week Two May 22nd, 2020 7:00PM (EST) - May 29th, 2020 7:00PM (EST) The link is the same for both weeks as it leads to my profile. If there is any interest in bulk deals, that can be accommodated via local pickup if done safely in the NoVA area. I hope that staying inside hasn’t driven everyone too crazy, and I just want to thank you again for your time, its been a pleasure working on this stuff, and the encouraging messages that I have received on this forum since November when I started posting have been sensational. If you're in the NoVA area and also are interested in cello wood, please do not hesitate to message me if you'd like to workout a local deal! Thank you! -Anthony Z.
  2. Hello again everybody I made a post back in November about some eBay auctions of my friends late husband, I had mentioned that there would be other items to be identified for sale later, and now is that time! There’s an assortment of tools, a GEWA finger plane, in addition to some old Stanleys, and larger planes that will be posted for the second week of the auction. But the main component of the next two weeks will be some of the books that were in his collection, some heavily used, some antique, including a beautiful Hawley Collection 1904, with all grease pages intact and no foxing present in the book. In addition to The Hawley Collection 1904 there are a few Karel Jalovec books that will also go up during the auction. Along with that, all wood is open for purchase, the exact number of Viola and Violin wood will be nailed down in the next week, but there is a link to a picture to show the amount available for purchase. There will be some pictures of the available cello wood in the coming weeks as well. I want to thank you all again for the kind messages during the first auction, even if its just in order to take a look around, or send a message, please check out the eBay store for anything you might like. Week One Friday, January 24th 7:30PM EST/4:30PM PST- Friday, January 31st 7:30PM EST/4:30PM PST Week One Friday, January 31st 7:30PM EST/4:30PM PST - Friday, February 7th 7:30PM EST/4:30PM PST The username is AnthonyZ214 on ebay,, the aforementioned wood pile, is linked here,, if you reached out about bulk wood back in November, I will contact you. Thank you all again, truly. I hope it finds y’all well. Anthony Z.
  3. Week 1 is winding down and finishes this evening at 7:00PM EST/4:00PM PST, but at that exact same moment week 2 goes live, with 3 sets of maple and spruce viola wood, various sets of herdim repair clamps, a scroll carving gouge set and other templates, violas, violins, f holes, and a bunch more. I want to thank you again, even if you just decide to browse for a moment. That being said, everything that did not receive a bid will go up saturday evening as a lower rate to accompany week 2. This is a truer representation of the wood stock that some have messaged about.
  4. Hello All! Recently a friend of mine contacted me about beginning to liquidate the workshop of her late husband, who was a luthier. There are tool chests filled with gouges, chisels, saws, clamps of all types, templates for various violas and violins, as well as other odds and ends. Over the last month or two we began to chip away at the room nearly filled with supplies and tools, we have identified as many tools, parts, pieces, and woods as we can for the time being and have compiled an eBay store. There are plenty of quality tools, some homemade tools, and other tools with modifications that made his job easier. In addition to these items, there are some larger items that require local pickup in the NoVA, such as a 10" Craftsman Bandsaw, and a Gemini Carving Duplicator. That being said there is a voluminous wood collection, upwards of 100 sets, that, over the next year will be slowly be liquidated. There are other instrument accessories listed as well such as several cases and gig bags. It is my understanding that at some point soon the collection of cello wood will also be liquidated. Opening on eBay with seller AnthonyZ214 Hello all, who end up reading this ad, its time for one last push here before the holiday season! As some of the bigger items left the shop we decided to list more before a break for the holidays. Everything that didnt sell the first two weeks was given a price reduction and there are still some lovely tools, that people just missed, or didnt end up paying for, regardless, I would like to thank you, for reading this far and if you bought anything from the store I additionally appreciate that, its been a process, and its been great to work hear some of the messages that folks have had, and finding out that some of you have been in situations similar to mine, I truly appreciate the words of encouragement. There are a few slabs of wood left from week two, and a picture will be included of what we'll start working through in January! There are some slabs and stacks of cello wood as well, but that will be sorted through and taken care of in time. Final Auction of Fall 2019, Ends, Friday, December 13th, 2019 7:00PM EST/4:00PM PST Some larger items like the Gemini carving duplicator will stay up until purchase, that is to say afterwards of Friday. Thank you again, it means a lot during the holidays -Anthony Z.
