Craftsmanship Across the Board
David Finck built guitars and furniture for 28 years before catching the violin making bug and teaching himself the craft in 2012. Since then he has primarily made violins and violas (a couple of classical guitars slipped in there somehow), for professional musicians, advanced students and dedicated amateurs. Most important to him among his “clients” are his two daughters who continue to play violins number one and two as professional classical violinists. As one of James Krenov’s students in the mid-1980’s, David credits the sensitive approach to woodworking taught at Krenov’s school with his successful transition to violin maker – and his wife, who has offered nothing but support over many years of dream-chasing.
