The 'White' Violin

Recommended Posts

Xania,

I love this.

From a thought about possibly making a violin, and now the violin exists...

Congratulations - this is a beautiful violin!

I can't wait to see it finished and strung up, and hear the eventual sound clips where you are playing it... (If you eventually do it - I'll post some of me playing one of my violins also)

Thanks everyone.

It IS finished, by the way. Yuen, it is fully varnished with oil varnish-no colour added. I have made the violin for my daughter, and that is what she wanted. It would probably not be my choice, but it actually looks fantastic when you see it for real. The photos don't really do it justice. Anyway, I've been rather cautious with this violin because it has exceeded all my expectations, and I have seen way too many beginner violins with a thick, dark varnish that doesn't really work for me. I didn't want to ruin it.

Having said that, the luthier that has been teaching me actually varnished it for me! It really does have a sensational tone, and I don't think that he wanted me to ruin it either.

I would say only only a good violin like this can stand up to the test

of not being coated with something terribly unnatural. Congratulation.

Congrats, xania.

I looked the pix last night, and liked the scroll. And I looked it again today, and still liked it. What a cutie!

It's a Christmas miracle!

Well done, xania. It's a lovely looking effort, and about bloody time too!

Now, get out the hand cream - I'd like to see number two about this time next year. You owe it to the Australian fiddle making cause.
