Tools For Working Wood is a rather nice and trusty source for Woodworking Tools and materials.  On one of their blogs, they have been putting out PDFs of a wonderful old magazine full of ways that things have been made.  Issue 110 of Work Magazine has an article with a listing and illustrations of tools the author, J.W. Briggs, considered appropriate for making violins. The instructions are perhaps a touch sparse but all in all it is a delightful article.  Issue 114 of Work Magazine continues the article as does Issue 118.   Issue 118 details his varnish recipe so it is of special interest.
