Stradivari Viola ‘Cassavetti’ 1727. CAT Scan data from Steve Sirr and the Smithsonian Institute. I’ve converted the CAT scan DICOM data to a Blender 3D. From this model I’ll create a body, mold, arching templates, volute templates, and detailed measurements. These mold templates will be the basis for making a viola closely matching Stradivarius’ creation

In Northern Michigan last week. They had a huge storm with lots of Maple down. We harvested a downed maple, milled it, cut to violin, viola, and neck block chunks. Brought home 2 huge 70 lbs suitcases full of tone wood. In 5+ years we’ll work them into instruments. So cool to start with natures raw material
