Commissioned work. Maple and walnut. They wanted something reminiscent of a violin. Does it work?

Nice looking wine tilt and a paid project to boot.

I’ve been making and selling the basic version (though slightly refined) for several years now. This year I was getting really tired of the drudgery so I opened myself up to requests. Much better, I love getting to use what passes for my brain more than cutting rectangles over and over :)

Oh and Navyman, I’m pretty close to you. About 15 minutes outside Newport.

It looks like you fiddled around with an old idea and have come up with a really unique and very nice design…

Works great! A really nice change to the standard ones out there. Do you have a pattern for it?

Thanks for all the comments, I sent a picture to the person who requested it and they seemed pretty happy. It’s a gift for his sister apparently. No specific pattern, just find a violin shape you like and go to town.
