After several months of back-to-back jobs for customers, it’s good to have a few days to get on with new instrument making. I began this violin back in the summer, but the original scroll that I carved for it ended up too Amati-inspired for this particular instrument, so this week I’ve been making a new neck and fitting it. However I think I might be able to salvage the old scroll too, which could be a nice excuse to start another violin!
