    Andrea Guarneri Scroll Tool Marks

    I am always looking for toolmarks as they tell the story of how the scroll was carved.  In these three photos I am interested in the end-grain wall of the volute and how it was sculpted with a chisel.  Today every violin maker uses a gauges of different radiuses.  I like to see the flat facets.  I have made a chisel with rounded corners so that when I carve the volute I can use this tool to shape the spiral wall.
