  1. Hello all Violin makers Im new to this forum stuff so bare with me. I am soon to be building a new outside workshop approximately 3.5 x 4 meters in the back garden due to having enough of it being in the house. I would be interested to hear from anyone that has done similar and would be happy to share anything from your experience of having done so, what you felt worked and what you feel could have been better. I am keen to know how to maximize a reduction of dust especially for when it gets round to varnishing. Weather or not to somehow put in a separated perspex box in the corner that can be sealed from day to day workings Edward www.edwardgautviolins.co.uk
  2. Heading to the cabin in the woods for the weekend? Off to a workshop? Family trip coming up and planning some "me" time? If you have a nifty way of transporting and keeping together your tools for the road trip, how about a photo and/or description? I know there is a fellow in our midst who has an amazing tool box he keeps with him as he travels across the country -- a vet who started making while on duty overseas. Someone else will remember his name. We've all schlepped in a suitcase at one time or another and for obvious reasons, that can be far from ideal. I imagine some here whose workshops are the envy of many have miniaturized. Just Because I Don't Remember My Own Name Does Not Mean I Am Having An Identity Crisis
  3. My first 5-string violin (basically a violin with a C string) doesn't seem all that bad but it isn't all that good either. I am hoping to get some feedback regarding the sound and ways to improve it. For comparison, I have included a sound clip from a 14-inch viola (it was converted from a Chinese no-label violin to a viola for my daughter. The instrument actually sounded better as a small viola than a violin.) The strings are violin Larsen E, vioiin Dominant A, D, G, and Infeld C for small violas. I think the C string side of the bridge is cut a tad too low. Plucking the C string with medium force leads to a buzz. Here are a couple of images. One for the 5-string and one for the small viola (which has no buzz). EDIT: See next post for the sound files. The original ones were incorrectly encoded.
  4. Hi Everyone, I'm new to this group and I'm just moving into a wonderful sunny room to make instruments. However, I'm not sure how best to set up my space. What do you suggest? From past experience, or what you do in your own work space, what works best so I'd have easy & quick access to everything and my bench doesn't get too cluttered? I have a drafting table with no drawer space, a smaller free standing bench with small shelves and drawers on both sides, two large free standing shelves & milk crates, and wall space. For tools, I have chisels, gouges, three knives, planes, sharpening stones, files, drafting mateirals/strait edges, scrapers, saws, drills, and brushes. I also have some good instrument wood and some scrap wood. I deeply appreicate any and all input! Thank you!
  5. I know you all like seeing other people's workshops and benches, but what I have always enjoyed seeing are close-ups of bench tops. Even without any tool on it, they tell you fascinating stories. So, I thought, why not start a thread to show such images. Surely I'm not the only one who like seeing such photos! I start with mine...
