Crimson0087 Posted January 16, 2022 Report Share Posted January 16, 2022 So I ordered purfling offline. It seems to be barely over a millimeter wide and 2mm deep. I used a purfling too that I ordered to mark the purfling then I used an exacto knife to carve along that marked line and used a purfling cleanout tool that I got off amazon that is supposedly ibex brand? Anyways. I dont know how but my purfling channel seems too wide. Videos I see online people have to hammer the purfling in and Mine slides in with way to much wiggle room. Is this a lost cause? I dont want to start over b/c I want to get a whole violin completed because I am sure I am going to make more mistakes along the way better to make them all on the same violin then attempt the second with that knowledge. Any ideas on ways I can make this "acceptable" to just finish it? Should I glue it in and fill in the space with epoxy? wood filler? I posted a pic along with a pic of tools I used.
