Hi All, I'm new here and beginning my first violin build. I have worked with wood for most of my life 50ish years. Little background: I've made a number of scratch build acoustic guitars and F5 mandolins using mostly hand tools and elbow grease. I'm a photographer by trade. Anyhoo, I've ordered a couple of posters from The Strad Shop (Antonio Stradivari 'Huberman' violin 1713 , and 'Vieuxtemps' Guarneri 'del Gesù' 1741). I have my wood for beginning to build, but I don't know when the posters will arrive. The Strad Shop is vague about delivery during the pandemic. My brother is sending me his copy of The Art of Violin Making - C. Johnson. So, the question is has anyone built a violin using the plans in Heron-Allen's book, Violin-Making As It Was and Is? I've attached a photo of it. Thanks for taking the time to read my post.
Wanted to buy: plans to build a Prakticello travel cello, also known as the Travielo. Designed by the late Ernest Nussbaum. He used to sell plans prior to 2014. This is for a gift. Any tips or advice gratefully received. I am in Australia. Thank you
Folks, I've been approached by someone wanting a lira da braccio! I know of several, including the da Salo and Giovanni Maria in the Ashmolean, as well as the Linarol in the NMM. The Ashmolean has the Hill drawings of the Maria, but other than that I am not aware of any good tech data on one of these beasts. I'm hoping some of you will be able to point me towards additional resources, comment on the quality of the Hill data, or talk about your experiences making a lira. Thanks so much!
