Violin Making Progress & Experience
At the beginning of summer 2020, I began to learn violin making from my partner, the owner and luthier of the Eugene Violin shop, Spencer Allen Stenquist.

After re-planing the front and back plates and planing the ribs, the mold was applied to the plates and 2 sets of outlines were lightly carved into the plates.
