Hi everyone! I know is not the appropriate place for discussing about this topic but I would like to talk about my approach to the liutherie that is different from modern liuthers. The main differences are that modern maker's are trying to copy things like thicknesses and external arching but for me it has no sense because thicknesseses are specific for every piece of wood and the external surface(arching) is a consequence of the project of the inner area (where the reflections of the vibrations take place) that works like a concave mirror for light waves. This system is shown on notes from Stradivari ,he like his master Amati and all old liuthers had a different concept of violin making than modern liutherie.
I made also a video where I talk about it with some personal ideas. If there is any maker here that would like to talk about it would be great.

Thank you for the opportunity of expression.
Alex

I suggest posting on Maestronet.com forums, particularly "The Pegbox" forum for luthiers.
