Violoncello "Sleeping Beauty" 1739, Domenico Montagnana
Lev Germansky posted a topic in The PegboxDear all, I'm about to start making my first cello. I'd like to get your insights on the process. I'm planing on making the back arching higher the the top arching according to the method described by Torbjörn Zethelius and I'd very much appreciate his comments to this post of mine. I know that the current measurements are with a higher top arching. I traced the model according to the method described by François Denis and would very much appreciate his comments too. I'm still confused about the rib height though. Please feel free to comment and modify my measurements. A list of measurements follows below. 1. Length of template and mold - 735 mm 2. Width of upper bouts - 346 mm 3. Width of CC bouts - 245 mm 4. Width of lower bouts - 435 mm 5. Rib thickness - 1.7 mm 6. Height of ribs at end pin - 125 mm (The original one according to the poster is 123 mm) 7. Height of ribs at neck root - 120 mm (The original one according to the poster is 117 mm) 8. Arching height - top - 32 mm 8.a. Top thickness - center - 5.5 mm and 4.5 at FF-holes and closer to the edge 8.b Top thickness at lower bouts - 5.0 mm and 4.0 mm closer to the edge 8.c. Top thickness at upper bouts - 5.0 mm and 4.0 mm closer to the edge 9. Arching height - back - 30 mm 9.a. Back thickness - center - 7.0 - 8.0 mm 9.b. Back thickness at lower bouts - 3.8 mm 9.c. Back thickness at upper bouts - 3.7 mm 9.d. Back thickness at CC bouts - 4.0 mm 10. Edge thickness of lower and upper bouts - top - 5.5 mm 11. Edge thickness of CC bouts - top - 6.0 mm 12. Edge thickness of lower and upper bouts - back - 5.0 mm 13. Edge thickness of CC bouts - top - 5.5 mm 14. Fluting depth compared to edge thickness - 1.0 mm 15. Edge distance from the ribs - 3.5 mm 16. Purfling thickness - 1.7 mm 17. Purfling distance from edge - 5.0/ 5.2 mm 18. Corner width - to be determined according to the model and overhang 19.

Starting my first Cello.
Kyle Lee posted a topic in The PegboxHello MN. I've been making several violins and but non of cello. Having lot of time in the house during this period of COVID-19, I decided to start making my first cello that I haven't tried. I thought sharing the process of my work here would motivate me to keep work. Since i'm still in the leaning process of violinmaking, please excuse clumsy skills and I hope there would be not many harsh criticism. but any constructive feedback will be always appreciated. and since english is not my mother language, tell me if there is anything that you don't understand. Although most job on the head and ribs has been done, I just bowsawed the plates so still long way to go. The model I follow is Stradivari "Feuernann,1730. It has quite narrow width of upper and lowe bout compared to standard stradivari cello. according to Tarisio... Length of back: 74.6 cm Upper bouts: 32.7 cm Lower bouts: 41.9 cm

Cello da Spalla
Kallie posted a topic in The PegboxHi there, Is there a reason the Violoncello da Spalla isn't really popular in today's playing? It has a lovely sound to it. Any reason why it isn't really popular? Do people just go with cello, rather than this? For interest sake, is there anyone here who perhaps make them? Who would like to share their opinion on these instrument?
