I'm starting this blog to document the building of a violin. It's actually my third violin (second made from scratch). As soon as the next batch of wood arrives, I'll start posting pictures and descriptions of what I'm doing. You get to be present at the creation, in on the workings--inner and outer--and the finished product will be for sale at the end. How's that sound?
My fellow luthiers are welcome to chime in with suggestions, which of course I may ignore or honor.
In my next post I'll try to let you in on some of what I've done so far.
