Rib Structures and Neck Sets in Violin Manufacturing

Marcus Bretto

Recommended Posts

Does anybody have pictures or ideas of how the better violin manufacturing companies are producing their rib structures and setting necks? I’m curious about what type of forms they may be using, how the ribs and linings are getting bent, how they’re leveling things off, jigs for routing neck mortises, ect. Anything that’s quick, efficient, and works!

Thanks for sharing! Part of me doubts they are still doing this in more advanced manufacturing facilities. Plenty of companies are using CNC to machine plates and carve scrolls these days.

To carve scrolls?  Just the general shape right? Not sure how computer run saw could do the finer work... but all my knowledge is outdated anyway.
