  1. On hearing on the radio, today, about the evacuation of the Swiss village of Brienz, due to increased risk of rock slides, I looked up the violin making school on the internet and found this interesting old photo below, (sorry about the poor quality) I was intrigued to see the shaving horse and its accompanying padded seat, in prominent place at front right. Then the work holding jig? at the back (a bit like my home made plane making wedge operated clamp!) and the mysterious peg on the bench at the front. I notice the bench doesn't seem to have a screw operated vice? I also like the three legged gluepot/posnet, Just like the one shown in the famous woodcut (from the same period when Andrea Amati was flourishing) by Jost Amman of "Der lautenmacher". I have often thought purpose made holding jigs are best for quick repeat work rather than the very useful but general purpose screw vice. Work holding jigs would make sense, to me, for a worker who specialized in scroll making. A shaving horse is a device that allows very quick and firm holding and repositioning of unevenish shapes, perhaps it was used here when roughing out many necks, especially in ones of the cheaper grades, made with plane, unfigured wood which I suspect would be less risky to drawknife to shape than heavily figured wood? In contrast to the general 'ancientness' visible, there seems to be some kind of motorised flexible shaft device, perhaps for carving? I wonder if anyone on Maestronet, could explain the likely use to a scroll carver of some of these tools and devices which don't seem to be found in modern luthiers workshops? I would be especially grateful if anyone can tell me where I can find more of these photos, taken by someone named Ing Strauss in 1946, apparently on a sort of reconnaissance trip to the Schonbach area. I would really love to see the interiors of other workshops if they exist! I wonder if this scroll carver, like Jost Amman's lutemmaker of 1568, had a trusty axe and chopping block but maybe hid them before the photographer arrived?
  2. Hello, and welcome to my introductory page! I'm a maker of violins, violas and cellos, and also specialize in sound adjustments. I'm also researching, teaching & writing about classic lutherie techniques. Graduate of The Violin Making School of America, Salt Lake City, USA, under Peter Paul Prier. Luthiers and shops I have worked with includes Samuel Zygmuntowicz, Brooklyn, and Christopher Reuning of Reuning & Son violins, Boston. For more information check out the links below. Enjoy!

Sweden only. Instagram: @zetheliusviolins Sometimes, but not always violin related content. When I publish a photo I usually do it in Instagram. Articles featured in The Strad magazine: August 2006 In August 2006 I published my theory for how the Cremonese (and all the Italian violin makers really) worked their archings. Not from the outside, as is the modern practice, but from the inside with the use of a chain. It stirred quite a controversy in the violin making community. Since then a growing number of makers use my 'inside first' method. December 2011 The best of the classic makers had a special method for finding harmonic relationships in their scroll carving. March 2014 Antonio Stradivari's only surviving template for a cello corner is an important clue as to how the instruments were made. Here I show how I make my own corner templates inspired by Stradivari. April 2016 June 2016
  3. As requested. Anyone who would participate, register interest if you like. Matt Noykos has proposed a da Salo viola scroll for which he is willing to post research materials...everyone in agreement that a da Salo would be most appropriate? Comments, ideas and etc., on this whole mess, post here. For example, ideas on "rules" for this not-competition. This may not happen for awhile, if Matt is going to be in on it, and he wants to, so let's wait. Anyway, that gives everyone enough time for everyone to study, figure out what's happening, and get their tools sharp.
