Descriere:

From Stradivarius to the modern day, violins have been revered as much for the beauty of their design as for their music. Violin Making enables anyone, whether a beginner or a skilled woodworker, to follow in the tradition of the Italian masters and, literally, make their own music. The book includes a short history of violin making; an introduction to materials, design, and techniques; chapters on each stage of making a violin, from the rib structure to varnishing and stringing the instrument; tables of measurements, including violins, violas, and cellos from quarter to full size; and 200 clear color photos and diagrams. Juliet Barker trained at the Bavarian School of Violin Making; she is a professional violin maker, restorer, and teacher.

Violin Making - a practical guide is for everyone interested in trying this most beautiful of crafts. Topics covered include: a short history of violin making; introduction to choice of materials and design; various stages of making a violin including vamishing and setting up the instrument; table of measurements for violins, violas and cellos, and finally, sections on the baroque violin, folk fiddles and the hardanger. With nearly 200 illustrations, clear step-by-step instruction and a minimum of necessary tools, this book leads both amateurs and skilled woodworkers through the delicate and precise techniques, and brings the art of violin making within the reach of all.
