Cool Stuff Being Made: Violin Makers Limited

By March 15, 2008Cool Stuff Being Made

A lovely sounding Cool Stuff Being Made this week, as Quince Eddens and Ronald Sachs of Violin Makers Limited show us how to craft a violin.

From their shop at Camp Hill, Pennsyvlania, we learn about the proper wood — European maple for the back, Italian spruce for the top — glue and proper varnishes, as the two put together a violin modeled after a Guarneri del Gesu.

  • You should try to get these Cool little videos on the TV!! Maybe, Discovery since they don’t own the Travel Chanel anymore. They have a Canadian based show called “How is it Made,” which is cool, but usually highlights Canadian companies! Thanks, John
