Written by Marty April 29, 2015 Well, Spring is slowly showing itself here in upstate. We are able to start some of our outside projects for the season. My son, Ian and I began breaking up an old concrete foundation on top of our hill to ready the area for his training pen for his horse Adi and a new colt.
In the shop, I finished putting the binding on the mandolins. Next, I will be gluing on the fingerboard so that I can start shaping it. Right now it is like a diamond in the rough.
I am also doing my best to keep up with my students in the violin class. We spent last class focusing in on the purfling and roughing out the scroll. I hope to soon have my scroll close to finished so that I can start fitting in the neck.
Instruments in their present state....
I will keep you posted on some of the upcoming classes I will be teaching in the fall when all the details are worked out....Stay tuned!
