Author and lifelong teacher Bruce Ossman uses his simple techniques and clear instruction to guide you through every single step of making a violin. With a complete list of tools, full-size patterns, detailed illustrations, and templates for every piece all included, you'll craft an instrument fit for an orchestra.
Utilizing fewer tools and expressing a get-it-done attitude, this useful manual makes the violinmaking processeasy for the everyday crafter. Using step-by-step instructions and hundreds of detailed drawings and color photographs, the obscure language and unfamiliar techniques of instrument-making are given a populist overhaul in this newly revised and expanded resource. Requiring only basic tools and everyday woods, aspiring luthiers can begin each new project with full-size component cutouts, which are included for each instrument piece. An inspiring full-color gallery of violins made by other amateur crafters is also included. From cutting and shaping each piece to assembly and performance, the theory that only elite crafters can make wood instruments is debunked.
