The amount of steps I go through in order to complete one small step in the making process drives me crazy sometimes! Crazy I tell you! It’s one small step after the next and if the previous step wasn’t executed properly then it will have a ripple effect throwing each step off the slightest bit. So this is why I like to make in my studio at home.
Music in the background helps but proper lighting and a sharp knife will do the trick. Measure 5,000 times and cut once. It never hurts to take a break to let your eyes rest and before coming back to work.
These f-holes are for a Stradivari violin that I am currently making.
