Amazing hand work, Roy. Did you get the pattern from somewhere or is this your own?

Hi Roy sent you some stuff on the mail. Not a classical approach but definitely in the right direction. I think the heel might need a bit added for more depth where it joins the violin body usually it needs 42mm. I usually cut out the peg box first before shaping the scroll. Just to give more support and also it is easier to hold in a vice when it is still square. 2nd is the scroll. I only round off and contour when I am forced to. The peg holes are reamed out using a special 1/30 taper reamer when the violin is finished. I usually pilot drill the peg holes at 6mm diameter at the start of the process to ensure that the axis line of the holes are square to the line of the kneck. Doing this before the peg ox is cut also givs you a marker for how deep you are going. THe depth of the peg box is only about 2 mm below the finished peg holes.Dave D
