  1. Adventure today (don't have any pictures)... A surprise neck set!! doncha just love wrapping up a repair to find the neck is somehow lose in its mortis... Other than that we have the 3/4 set up and homer the little sister. Plays beautifully for a fractional fiddle, but still has a lot of opening up to do
  2. get the best you can afford. you only ever have one first violin!!!
  3. It really is a rather lovely violin... so far, no one has been able to comprehend the quality. Even myself! besides that, it will go to my little sister when she's big enough
  4. Hangin around after some French polishing feral bridges everywhere!!! Plus another with a misbehaving bottom bout.. former member of the Flat Bridge society.
  5. I would love a job!! However I will be in the not Texas area for quite some time being a broke college student of VA I'll be doing whatever work I can
  6. I just created a topic in the contemporary makers forum I just posted some of my few build pics and a current repair
  7. Thanks! and the short neck is basswood... not my favorite to work with, but it is for practice so it gets the job done. leather is about the greatest material (other than wood) out there I'll be sure to do just that! thank you!
  8. Top on, rib shortening results revealed, and some touchup varnish somewhere down the line, someone thought they'd polish some rosin dust into the varnish for kicks.. so she has freckles
  9. Form, blocks, c bouts to liners, rough arching to near final arching... coming soon, purfling. This has been a lovely venture so far
  10. its around 1.8 millimeters to the left of the center seam thankfully. I will have more pics with a better camera tomorrow before and after set up and some updated build pics. I'm headed to college next Sunday, so I wont be working again til Christmas sadly..
  11. Hi all! Figured I'd try and document some progress here I don't have many pictures of the violin in progress, but heres a decent repair to be finalized tomorrow. A rather nice German early 20th cent. 3/4 violin. Issued addressed were; a saddle crack, split end block replacement, rib shortening, blackwork, and full setup.
  12. Haha Amanda and I. It's definitely more of a recent development.. BBC did an article with Ray and Amanda if you're interested
  13. My second fiddle was also a Juzek from the 30s, and I loved it to death! I will say that there is a variety of tones and colors under that sticker, I have found, unlike a lot of modern factory productions (this is a whopping generalization, but hey) I hope you get back to playing!
  14. I love these guys, and have been in the market for a good five string for a while...
