Closing The Box

Getting the front glued back on is always a relief!

What a relief to finally get this front glued back on today. When we estimate 3-5 hours to remove and replace a front and then find there is hardly any gluing surface to speak off.

I try to avoid half-edging whenever possible and glue patches or shavings along the gluing surface with minimal removal of the original wood.

Not one of my favourite tasks in violin restoration!
