I love that first photo - I love the "roughness". :wub:

Can I save a copy for my screen saver?

Thanks!

My next brilliant idea is that Manfio should put together a calendar! :)

Thanks Jim and Rue!  Jim, I also glue a copy of the scrool over the wood for carving it. In the case of the f holes, I will make some adjustments by eye as I cut them.

Viola "Bewitched". I use rubber bands to keep the bridge in place for adjusting the neck position.

Weight of the viola prior to varnish, 452 grams for a 16-inch viola.

Thanks, Manfio. Your photos and sound both are perfect.  What principle or what philosophy in your mind to create them?  thanks.
