I was totally fascinated by this video. It inspired me to look for courses in which you can learn how to make them and this is without a doubt something I'm going to attend in the future. :)

Fascinating stuff to watch, Denny, as always.

That was an awesome video, did not realize how much work went into making a violin by hand.

I have been Looking around for information on this subject. It seems if you live in the states and do not have any in's with anyone who is already a luthier its hard to get started. I cant seem to find any tool or wood vendors in the state of Minnesota, It may vary but that is what i didnt find.
