Help me restore my Old Violin Coffin Case
5ebaschARG posted a topic in The PegboxHope 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.
The Case Survey
Rue posted a topic in The FingerboardI don't know if I can get this survey to work properly, but what the hey! Another case thread mentioned that we might only be repeating the manufacturer's ad copy when we give recommendations. So! Let's give our personal experiences instead! I was limited to three questions, so in the comments please add any other relevant information, such as your climate and how you use your case. Does it ever leave the house? Travel with it daily on public transport? Occasional car travel only? Pros and cons? Choose only one of your cases for the survey. Add additional case comments below. Let's see what we come up with!

Televet posted a topic in The Auction Scrollhttps://www.bromptons.co/auction/27th-march-2017/lots/298-a-rare-italian-violin-case-circa-1700.html Saw this and Thought of GlennYorkPA. Not so many of these about, and not that highly priced all things considered.
Violin case Trash or treasure
johnydangerfield posted a topic in The PegboxHi I have purchased an old violin and it came with an old case which is reasonable condition however I read that one is better off throwing out the case and buying a new one. I thought for the providence etc of the whole thing it may be better to keep the case as if I sell the violin someone else may want it but who knows. Should I buy a new one to keep it in and out of harms way thanks
Vintage wooden violin case
Lwhynot posted a topic in The PegboxHi all on this forum, I am wondering if anyone give me some ideas about a wooden case that housed an 1890 Stainer copy violin I bought in France (in 2004). The violin is now not in my possession (long story), but the case is a really pretty wood, in good condition; I would like to find a place to sell it to someone who may have an interest in these things. On a complete guess, it may be European made, sometime around 1930- 1940-ish? maybe later. It should be looked at and appreciated even if it is not of any substantial value. I have uploaded a series of pictures here: https://plus.google.com/u/0/photos/111670051828402898863/albums/6071631394116137873?sort=4 Thanks, -Lori
Information About Wood Violin Case
totti posted a topic in The PegboxHello, I recently acquired a violin with a somewhat unusual case. The case is solid wood, with metal (?) latches. The ball feet are made of wood, too. The inside is quite nice, given the age. It is lined with a green fabric (velvet?). Before creating an account, I would sometimes lurk in here. I wanted, especially, the input of GlennYorkPA. I've read some of his posts regarding violin cases. (I haven't read his book, yet. Sorry! ) I would be glad to hear information from anyone! I have taken many pictures. So, I created a photo album under my SkyDrive. Here is the link: http://sdrv.ms/119w8E4 Furthermore, I have pictures of the violin and the bow. I'd be happy to hear any information (history, maker, repair estimates, etc.) about those, as well. Thank you for your help! - Totti
