Good luck to you! I always admire the folks who can build and work on fiddles and such, knowing all along that I'd hate to see what I'd produce if given wood, glue, lacquer, molds, etc.

Last jam I went to there was a guy there who was playing both the fiddle and mando he built. Pretty awesome!
I've begun repairing, and I like it. But I always preferred old to new, so that seems to suit me. I call it fiddle rescue! I, too, have transferable skills from my years doing antique restoration.
Let us know how it goes!
