This might just be of some interest - a few minute interview with a luthier, talking about the woods he uses.   This chap lives in a remote corner of Scotland, called Scoraig.

It's probably within 50 miles of where I stay - although the last 10 miles is not much more than a footpath!

AB's interview -

Not a complete web-site by any means - but a link anyway -

And - apart from seeing him carving out a fiddle, you'll see his home-made washing machine here made from an old beer-keg abd a windscreen-wiper motor !

Please make your own, different mistakes, and help us all learn :-)
