Sorry, this item sold. Have ZachsWoodworking make something just for you, or try these other items:
This is the frst fiddle I built. The back, sides, neck, fingerboard, tailpiece,end rest and chin rest are made from curly maple, the soundboard and blocks are western red cedar and the bridge and nut are hard maple. The tuning pegs and endpin are made from ebony and were bought pre-made. The violin is a standard 4/4 size. It is finished with Bush Oil, which is a linseed oil based wood finish that I use on all of my instruments. The chin rest is finished with mineral oil. I can send more photos and will try to make a video of the violin being played, or at least record a sound file. Please let me know if you have any questions. This fiddle had a mishap in the workshop and I had to repair the soundboard, the close-up photo shows the affected area. The fiddle plays just as well as ever but the area is visible. I had some trouble with the flash taking these pictures. I have brand new student quality cherry violin bows from Stewart-MacDonald and can send you one along with the fiddle for an extra $20, which is what they cost me to buy. Thank you for your interest. Please inquire for international shipping rates.
