Thank you guys so much. So, I'll get some basic tools and I'll start practicing on wood. At the same time I'm reading and watching videos about violin making to learn everything I can about the process. Where I live there's no workshop or schools or anything like that about violin making. The only thing I found was a course on how to make an electric violin. I know it's not the same, but I'm gonna take it, I bet I'll learn things that could be useful, plus I'll get to know people that share the same interest. I'm trying to find The art of violin making to buy online, but it seems to be unavailable in every place I look. Do you have any idea where can I get it? I'm from argentina so I would need a place that ships internationally. Thank you again.
Hello guys, I hope you're all doing ok. I want to become a violin maker. I am aware that it will be a hard and long process, but I am very excited and I know that this is what I want to do. I wanna do it as a hobbie, at least at first. I've been reading some information online and posts from this forum, but I'm still kinda lost on where to start. Should I buy a book on violin making and read it to get familiarized with the process? Start learning about types of wood and the tools that will be needed? Buy the tools and start practicing on wood before making any attempt to start working on the violin? I'm also in the process to become a violinist, I've studied for almost 3 years now, so I have a general understanding about the violin and its parts, but I have zero idea about tools, working on wood and that kind of stuff. Obviously I haven't set up a workspace either. So, I could really use some advice from you guys on where to start and which the firsts steps are. Sorry if there is already another post with the same topic, I wasn't able to find it. thank you!
