Thanks for the link.  That's a nice looking little fiddle.  I wonder how Strad designed it.  

I had a conversation w Kevin Kelly about this, and he suggested a simple construction method using something similar to modern day "French curves", or perhaps just tracing the curves of existing moulds/templates.

I don't know how people do that.  I've seen youtube videos where a violin is held on the chest but when I try it,  it seems like a very awkward way to hold it.   

It's only awkward if you attempt to use modern left-hand fingering and right-hand bow hold.
