We would welcome suggestions for what the label should say.  Jim Bress has suggested it should have two labels in honour of Craig's unique posting style...:D

But what should it say?

Shouldn't there be a third label which reads, "Guffaw"?

It would certainly save another trip if you are okay with that and Dorian doesn't mind. 

Sounds like we are ready for the chin rest and case from Dwight once we know where to send them. I am more than happy to pay for pegs strings etc if needed.

Speaking for myself I would be honored if you would set her up if Chris and Nick are happy to ship her on once the varnish is good and dry. That might work well since Dwight is at least in the same State as you for the case.

I think we are all eager to hear this violin. I wonder if we could organize a streaming sound check? Anyone know any soloists we can badger for a celebrity endorsement :ph34r:

I am hoping we can get the finished violin up to the Pacific North West before it is sold. Are we all okay with me approaching Jason Price to see if we can place it in a Tariso sale or does anyone have a better plan.

The humidity and hundred degrees heat have been FIGHTING ME. The varnish fogged up just going out into sunlight for this photo! But it is done, and headed to Dorian today. Thank you @joerobson for the varnish you provided me so long ago. All went well.

Nicely done Chris

I just talked to Dorian Barnes and the Case is on the way to him in Houston.  It's a nice American Case Company Manhattan  oblong case.  I have some of them and the work out well.

Here is the kicker, Turns out that Dorian's Dad was my Viola professor at Ithaca College!  I never made the connection as I am a bear of very little brain!  I actually knew him when he was a kid.  His brother plays in the Philly orchestra just like his dad did!

Go Figure :-)

Its gorgeous! My Craiggy was so blessed to have such loyal and devoted friends. He is smiling down from heaven at you dear people. I know hes thrilled and even having a good guffaw!☺ I will always be grateful for each one of you and wish I could thank each one in person and give you a big hug. This experience has carried me through the last 3 years in many ways..being involved ..even in a small way..with those who meant so much to Craig has been almost therapudic for me. Ill always be grateful for each of you and all you've done in memory of my Craiggy. You'll be in my prayers and in my heart always. With tremendous love and respect for each of you..Mary Tucker
