Things and dings for violin making

The last couple of days, I´ve made little things for building my first violin. From the left you have the craddle and inside that on the top, you have different clamping cauls and on the bottom you have templates for arching the belly and the bottom. To the right you have the building mould , to templates for cutting out the bottom and the belly and finally a template for making the arch along the grain. I dont know when I´ll start building the violin. Time will show....

Guitar number 97 finished

So this is a bit out of the normal. A Peghead blanca with a cedar soundboard, an inlayed soundport and mechanical pegs (pegheds)  Sound and setup is absolutely top notch. I will try to make a video soon.
