To answer your questions 

my father was Sergio De Paoli master violin maker. 

Born in friuli, Italy 

migrated to Windsor Ontario Canada. 

Was a sculptor, fine artist and instructor since the early age of 14 - accepted to Ontario college of arts for portrait painting- his pieces can be seen world wide. 

His violin wood collection was quite large - we are now parting with pieces that he had kept closer - in his 86th year to work on. 

We would love for this wood to carry on and sing. 

Please email me - we can work out pricing - our main concern is getting it into the right hands.

We feel it’s a shame to keep it locked up in storage!
