I finally got my violin case all finished.
It is made out of Poplar wood and is stained Cranberry Red (General Finishes) with Arm-R-Seal Semi Gloss Poly.

I cut leather into strips and stained them with the Cranberry wood stain for the bow holders.

The interior is covered in green velvet over P/U foam cut to fit a violin.

There is also and accessory compartment with velvet interior.

I think I am going to sew a padded canvas cover for the case. A case for the case… I just can’t stand the thought of scratching it.

Now I just need to learn how to play the infernal thing ;)

The case looks great I wouldn’t waste time learning this since it obvious you have great talent already :)
