Cigar box Style violin

20140407-160354.jpg

I really wanted to start learning violin, so why not start with making one? Strings and tuning pegs should be here tomorrow, so hopefully another update later this week. The neck is black locust, as is the nut and button. The top is poplar and the back is some free dumpster plywood. The sides, fingerboard, tailpiece, and bridge are all cherry. You can’t see it, but there’s a piece of oak on the inside to help support the neck and the button.
