Manfio's Bench; My latest instrument...

Recommended Posts

The maple is quite nice, but the spruce is quite nice too. I just bought some Englemann that has that nice silkiness to it. The F hole fits in perfectly.  I've never traced an F hole pattern before.  I'm an eyeball guy.   I draw them until they look right.  I don't know how they'd transfer from 2D to 3 D.  Sometimes it works!  That one is nice.

Hello Manfio!

Your work is always something I want to see first. Marvelous.

Regarding the Berlin examination I've got an impression that sound was a bit suppressed in higher positions. It could be the player's case. In lower positions (1-3) stunning sound.

Best wishes!

Thank you all! Christian, for my backs, I use a rather soft, light maple, that is good for viola sound. For the necks I do prefer a harder maple, as seen in this scroll.
