When I began building a violin last year, it was just out of curiosity. What is a violin, I wondered, and what is it like to make one. So I began creating an instrument, looking a lot like a violin. I did not know what to expect from the results. I enjoy making things with my hands, intricate things, preferably out of wood, and I have made various musical instruments before.

I just came across this post. Yes, violin making is incredibly fascinating and frustrating. I just finished my 4th. I've just recently learned about the incredible relationship between the bridge, the sound post and the bass bar. Anyway, I enjoyed reading what you wrote.
Here's a link you might want to check out. Roger Hargrave, in my opinion, is one of the greatest makers alive today not entirely because of his technical abilities (which are first rate) but because he is so willing to share his knowledge and has documented many wonderful instruments. I spend one entire winter studying each writing from the link below. It really helped me a lot because I know I will probably never see any of these wonderful instruments!

Thank you very much, Kubasa,
and thank you for the link to Roger Hargrave.
That is some good reading, and I can't wait to get started.

How exciting to actually build a violin. Exciting to hear how your adjustments made the instrument change so dramatically. Please continue to share your discoveries. Thanks.
