The sequence follows a constructional procedure, each stage leading to the next, until finally the viola emerges in a finished form. The following sequence of pictures follows the build in 2009 of a 16 ¾ in., viola.
Due to the large number of images the sequence is broken up into three galleries. Together these galleries give a unique insight into the constructional process that I follow in my workshop. I hope that you find them of interest.
This build sequence is also available in this extended publication.
