Today I put it back together. I noticed later I forgot to cut the tuning pegs flush with the peg box. I'll do that tomorrow or later.
This is flamed maple back, sides and neck. European spruce top. 4/4 size. Made for my granddaughter who just turned 9 4 weeks ago. She will receive it next year in April I think.
I have wood for a couple more but don't know when the next one will happen....maybe a good winter project??
Thanks for looking.

Last week we had a classical violinist staying with us for a few days while she collaborated on some music with a local string quartet. Her violin is over 300 years old. I kept wondering how a violin I might build would compare to hers. Probably not very favorably! It got me thinking about building one though. You've set a high bar to aspire to.
