Between 10 and 300 hours depending on the varnish.

Wow, 300 hours.  I have some resin that's been cooked for 100 hours. Maybe I'll cook it longer this summer and see what happens. Thanks Joe.

Some very happy looking people there! Looks like everyone has had a good time (or maybe just high on varnish fumes), and quite a range of different finishes.

Our goal in the Workshop is match the maker's vision, the instrument, the materials, and the application method.

I've noticed you varnish a lot of these fiddles with the decorated inlaid backs. Who makes them?

This is a daSalo viola..15 3/8.... individually made for me.  This maker also does the del Gesu King Joseph for me.  You will understand that I cannot share the details.

His work is always top shelf!

The woodwork and especially the inlay always look so well done and your varnish is the icing on the cake. Are you selling these somewhere or is there a place I can have a better look?

The most recent Viola is available at Korinthian Violins in Milwaukee.  There are pictures on my Facebook page: Violin Varnish Ltd.

Inside and outside the woodwork on these instruments is excellent.  They are made to original specifications.
