Cello after Andinio Stradivari 1712 Davidov.
The Cello below is being varnished along with a violin. I am also ready to assemble a violin see image below. Once assembled the neck heel and button will be shaped.
Then the edge work and corners shaped. You don't shape the edges before assembly because the closing clamps can leave marks. A series of wetting - drying then scraping the
raised soft wood between the grain is done on the corpus of the violin. You need to do this otherwise the varnish will raise the soft wood between the grain, this would make
for a very uneven surface. The violin in the white will be put into the ultra violet light box to yellow the wood before varnishing.
