    Yowzah!! Love the very specific tools and jigs of all sorts to make the job easier. Those tiny violin-maker’s planes were awesome.

    I was feeling a bit stressed and annoyed after work today. Then I watched this.

    The amount of skill that went into making that violin is astonishing.

    Some serious hardcore woodworking pornography there!

    Looks easy enough 🙂

    I once read that the old recipe for violin finishes was lost a long time ago when luthiers in Cremona switched to using a faster-drying formula in order to satisfy their clients’ demands. It has never been rediscovered, and is thought to be an intrinsic part of the tone of a Stradivari or Amati instrument.

    Apparently there was a violin-maker who dedicated his entire life in a quest to research and re-create the Stradivarius tone – and failed by all accounts.
