That sounds awesome for a first violin! 

You should be very proud! :)

Thanks! I am rather pleased with it! My only regret is I went with budget wood instead of the fancier stuff because I was afraid I was just gonna ruin it.  ;)

Congratulations!  Looking forward to more pics. The varnish looked nice from what I could see in the video. 

Thanks!

In the end the varnish does its job, just was a pain to cook, added time/steps I could have saved using pre-made varnish, and my attempt at antiquing came out less-than-satisfactory when compared to the work some folks here do. But then again they have years of experience, I'm just a noob still.  ;) 

But it was a great learning experience!   :D

 

Here are some mugshots of it!

It has a different tailpiece on the video (a 'compensated harp'). I'm still experimenting with elements of the setup to fine-tune it (it likes the harp best).  :)
