Manfio's Bench; My latest instrument...

Recommended Posts

New York is closer...but still too far!!! Wish I could come see these beautiful instruments -and get to meet you- in person.

I hope you have a lovely time in the Big Apple!

Bravo Luis!  I can't imagine anything more rewarding than seeing something off your bench played at an elite level.  All the rest on forums for makers is a lot of hot air...

Those are the kind of stripes I like; curly, deep, wavy, wide.  The varnish does them justice.  Nice work as always Louis.

Luis, Good to see.

I wonder was it inspired by Ravel, or the myth or both?

(Be fun to try to arrange the music for viola and piano)

Thank you all! Beh, che bella donna!

 

I will take it to NYC, will be there from October 18 to 25 and for Julie Reed's Modern Makers Exhibition.

 

"Ondine" is a name inspired in Debussy.
