I have been busy trying to catch up with repair work, and finally forced myself to take a half-hour or so at the end of the day and get the next violin started.
Here I am in the midst of splitting out and squaring up some willow from a tree that blew down years ago. I square up 5 sides fairly well, not so much the outer edge, as it's going to get trimmed off anyway, carefully, to form the outside curve.
After they are reasonably nice, I glue and clamp the neck and endblocks in place. Hope to get a couple corner blocks, at least, in place tomorrow.
