1 fiddle= 3 weeks to build + 2 weeks of varnishing! WoW just wow, I know many hours were were needed and understand more why real hand made violins cost an arm.

Ah !  Can you reveal how long it takes to make a $15,000 bow ?

Besides, I thought you said that you lived on an estate so you can't be worried about money for a new violin ????

Your profile says "Ken Johnson".  The video says "Casey Driessen".  Your handle is "Fiddlestix".   But I don't remember you and I never forget a face.  So, you must be someone else.

However, the fellow doing the playing is really good but I don't recognize him either.

Yes, Oliver it's me. NV posted the song and I recorded it the next day.  Wasn't too good though. dazed
