The Violin

Detail of the top showing the f-hole and purfling (the black-white-black strip).  The channel for this was already cut most of the way around, but it had to be extended out to the points, then the purfling itself had to be cut and fitted. The f-holes were already cut out too. Violin Purfling
 The body after gluing on the top. Violin Body
The mortice in the neckblock ready to receive the neck. It may look like the angles are not the same each side, but they are - honest! Violin Neck Mortice
Complete and ready for finishing. The first sealer coat has been applied. The fingerboard will be glued on after varnishing and polishing is done.  Violin Complete
