Polishing violin Edward. This is the first in a series of videos that illustrate the polishing process used between coats of violin oil varnish. The oil varnish comes from from violinvarnish.com. You can view the entire video at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bDy-Sj9bm_c#newsbrunswick

In the drying cabinet. Fiona with last coat drying, George with a bit of touch up. Almost done-anyone want to play one of these beauties?

From the 3D Blender of the Cassavetti, I cut a thin section from the center of the ribs. Then traced the half of the rib outline. With this half model vector trace, I create a mirror image for the treble side, and from this outline am able to create traditional half model mould, a full outline mould, and the mould with cutouts for the eventual corner blocks. This corner block model will be processed via a CNC machine to create an exact mould for the Viola. Along with the CNC mould pattern I create exact clamping caul models which the CNC machine will create to the exact mirror image of the viola corners. ‪ For the ongoing store of this my Cassavette Viola project go to: howeryviolins.com/stradivari-viola-cassavetti-1727/ #‎viola‬ ‪#‎violinmaker‬ ‪#‎violist‬‪ #‎violin‬ ‪#‎luthier‬ ‪#‎ameliaisland‬ ‪#‎northflorida‬ ‪#‎jacksonville‬ ‪#‎model‬‪ #‎3dmodeling
