The Art of Violin Making Part 4: Bringing it All Together with David Finck (Tues to Sat) September 6-10, 2022
In this class students will take the separate parts of the instrument that have been made previously: scroll, fingerboard, top, back, and rib structure — and bring it all together into a violin! Students will first remove the ribs from the internal form and glue the top and back to the ribs. Then the fingerboard and nut will be glued to the neck. David will then show how to cut the neck mortise into the body, fit the soundpost, shape, fit, and glue the neck, and make and install the saddle.
