    I think it is so great that you play the violin. (That's the music teacher in me coming out!) But restoring your violin? Extra cool. The artistic shot is really great.

    She does! She does! Early the next morning, even "LaFoto" gets to see your wonderful new instrument which has turned out impressingly beautiful. All is beautiful about it, the four layers of varnish AND the photos you took - NOT only the artistic one. Congratulations! This is a super job. :thumbup: :thumbup: :hail:

    Now that I've seen the condition it was in when you first got it, I must say once again: super job done to it. Admirable! (This applies to both, the photos you took of it in the various stages of restoring it, and the actual violin restoration work!).

    Good job Little man, there is something soothing about working with wood. Bet you will enjoy playing it so much more after the work you put into it.
