AD, you really gotta label your photos, so we know whether we're looking at something you made vs. a genuine old Cremonese.  It's too hard to tell the difference.

The avatar says it all!

Was that made with a straight varnish originally?

is it a full size scroll?

how old were you when you carved this? It’s pretty impressive work age aside

Yes, it's full size.  It was slightly shaded, but pretty close to straight.  I think I would have been 16 or 17 when I carved it.

My observations:

1 - you must have enormous pockets

2 interesting seeing the antiquing happening that way

3, nice scroll, especially for age. I find it difficult to imagine it new though (not questioning the fact that the antiquing is natural) 

4: what did you do to get that gold-shimmer in the wood? Same organic primer or something different?

Just for fun, here’s some evaporated poop juice. 

You probably don't get many second dates when you explain to them what you do for fun.:P

Who needs dates when you spend your time making violins!

What's a second date??

Looks like my guess was right.

As a violinmaker, there's no need to know.   Similarly, a male praying mantis doesn't need to concern himself with such things.
