  1. the top block area let think it is not a strad one. should this top block area not be straight ? as described by Sacconi. At strad time the neck was not inserted in top block, so the front should also not have a so large top block area. Or at least we should see some repair. these are just assumptions. But probably I completely mistake
  2. Is this one Fake Flames? they look painted. It seems they re is no wood texture change beyong the varnish maybe I mistake - once again...
  3. If you don t have the Money to buy one, you can simply rent a better one. When you are not more satisfied then you stop the rental.
  4. Interesting answers. Thank you for your contribution.
  5. I agree that. My question was related to the wood sélection. It seems it was very nice piece of wood to match so nice in both directions for the neck and have so nice continuity on the back/ribs. I was just doubtfull due to the fact that some technics are applied by workshops for long. And then was asking if it is possible to do a so perfect fake. But according to answers it seems it is just a very good wood selection.
  6. I&H = Ingles&Hayday My point were the flames on the peg box as we can see them on side, & back at same time. On this cello the ribs flames were also perfectly matching the back.
  7. I had a look on current auction a I&H today and was wondering if this wood configuration is possible or if it was fake flames. Thanks to share your experience. I would be interested if some have fake flames pictures to share. It seems to be difficult to detect only from pictures. David.
  8. Good question. I was usually told by people (wood supplier & Luthier) that average 2mm wide is good . That 's about 12.5 grain per inch. I don't know if there is a 'normal' grain. I just did a check on some master's cello, and it seems to be possible to do very good cello whatever the grain size is. I have personnaly access only to wood with wider grain on bout edges, a bit as on the Strad & Vuillaume.
  9. Amazing piece for the back. It seems you have thin grain on spruce.I I will follow your post with lot of interest
  10. I am impressed by details. Very Nice. congratulation With your skills you could select flammed mapple, no? (I know for 2xbass it is very expansive though) David. Cello #1 : https://youtu.be/Ik1T6smpTFc Cello #2 : https://youtu.be/rBX_9LnsoQM
  11. Hello, It is interesting Post.Thank you for sharing 1. I don't understand your chart, what is in Y/X? I would thought Hz/Weigth, but as the target should be <360 it seems you were far from target when you did the post. Then I wonder why it is usefull to make measurements and records at his step. 2. How do you know the target values at this step ? I read the old articiles in publications, but most measured values are with finished and old plate, then during making process, as the varnish, bass bar, purfling and edge effects are unknown it seems difficult to predict correctly. 3. "Italian arching" : do you mean Sacconi arching or similar one with some adjustments ? - I noticed you drawn a big C joining the Upper and Lower bout? your purfling looks nice. One can see the maple texture on the white part. Regards, David ATCello #1 : https://youtu.be/Ik1T6smpTFcCello #2 : https://youtu.be/rBX_9LnsoQM
  12. It looks like a new cello project starting. Beautiful background : workshop, windows and the trees ! DavidCello #1 : https://youtu.be/Ik1T6smpTFcCello #2 : https://youtu.be/rBX_9LnsoQM
