Sebastian: The neck is set. I just finished the UNH violin workshop last week. Todd Goldenberg.goldenberg honed my skills. Now with sharper tools, and better posture, the work gets easier and tighter. Thanks Todd

Button Graft, etc: This early 20th century instrument had the neck come off and get hastily reattached. The button was broke, the purfling gone… So I had some fun :-) and also have a happy customer

My Viola Played by Joel Link at an Amelia Island Chamber Festival concert

View this post on Instagram

Viola Primrose: Joel Link first violinist for the Dover Quartet #doverquartet was teaching the resident students at the Amelia Island Chamber Festival spring Institute this past week. For the final concert he needed a viola, and he did not want to carry his violin and viola on the flight. So, Joe Marasco the Festival executive director asked if I had a viola Joel could play for the week. So, the one of the violas I've made on Amelia Island was played by Joel at the final Amelia Island Chamber Festival concert of the season. How cool is that! #violin #viola #violinmaker #luthier #orchestra #fernandinabeach #ameliaisland #brunswickga #staugustine #stmarys #jacksonville #jaxsymphony #unfmusic #jumusic #luthier #violinist #florida #northflorida #Georgia #luthier #firstcoast

Sebastian: Fitting the purfling corners. Purfling is decorative, but also protective. The purfling is a thin inlay that protects the plates from cracks. If the instrument is knocked against a desk, or music stand (happens often), then the purfling will inhibit any cracks from going into the plates
