    Learning Violin Making

    Violin maker Derek Roberts from Leamington Spa, Warwickshire, UK, shows step by step, picture by picture, the violin making process.  It is an accurate account and loosely follows the Cremonese system as described by Simone Sacconi.  The inlaying of the purfling is done when the box is still open.  This is a way to better control the thickness graduation around the purfling channel, an area that is particularly sensitive to sound production.  I bet his violins produce a beautiful tone!
