About the Book
This book chronicles the particular method by which I construct violins of my own design. Included in this book is step by step detail for the development of my violin plate outline and the processes for making instrument ground coats out of frankincense and myrrh resin and the inclusion of other constituents in that ground coat for improving the sound quality.
Also included is my own interpretation of violin making history and the reason behind the beautiful sound of the instruments crafted during the Golden Period that is much sought after in the modern day. The photos, design, drawings, text, errors and conclusions are my own.
