Hope you´re doing great! I´m a Beginner Maestronet user, Beginner Violinist, Beginner Woodworker and future Violin Maker (not fair to call myself a Luthier just yet), so beginner everything... Today I come to your aid to help me restore this Violin Coffin Case I got for 5 dollars equivalent! in Argentina. The Case is well worn and needs a new lining and interior everything (which I´m not terribly clueless about but if you have any tips I will definitely appreciate them), the main issue it has is that is doesn´t close flush on the left side, it stops way before it would be acceptable to me at least(maybe the side wood panels are bent outwards?). I´m new at this so any pointers are awesome! Greetings from the Land of Silver! PS: should I refinish the exterior with varnish or wax or just leave it as is? I intend to use it as a regular case.
Good Day from Argentina to everyone! I have a question worthy of this wise Community... What do you know about violins with this shape? How much would this violin go for? And finally an ignorant question I assume myself: Does oil varnish ever get this dark naturally or is it completely deliberate? "Presumably German around 1930s - the label is in our opinion not authentic. Please listen to the video/soundfile & click on the image to see all detailed XXL photos below as part of the description!Finely carved scroll and accurately inlaid purfling. This beautiful violin shows no open cracks or open seams. Medium to fine grained spruce front and beautiful 1-piece maple back. The violin was completely revised by our luthier and checked on playability by our violin player. In our workshop it received new ebony pegs, ebony tailpiece, ebony chinrest, a new bridge and new strings. Beautiful rare instrument in immediate playing condition! Please listen to the sound ! Measures aprox.: total 60 cm / 23.6", body 36,4 cm / 14.3", vibrating chord length 33,5 cm / 13.2", weight 475 gr / ~16.75 oz." https://www.old-violin.com/rare.html A little more info: In Argentina we are still in full lockdown and I have by the grace of a higher being chosen to learn to play the VIOLIN, and couldn´t be happier. I´m done with Suzuki level 1 on a cheap chinese violin and Luthier Violin making is becoming more interesting by the minute! Thank you in advance, The Argentine Schindler
