Handmade violin

My first musical instrument project was a violin made by my Uncle Gene.  He had decided to quite making them, but was kind enough to add one more to the list. He even sent along a book called Violin Making to help and inspire. I remember being terrified that I would ruin his beautiful craftsmanship with my crazy stain designs.  I went through many design ideas before I settled on something that I thought would work. (I’d still like to make something based on the f-hole, maybe next time.)  f-hole

Here’s a couple of pics before I did too much damage:
