@stringy -

WOW, this is a great CNC tutorial!  

Loved the wood!

...loved the clamping forms.

I want one of these violins! 

Except I really want to hear someone play it (he barely stroked one string)

- I need to hear how it sounds.

Thanx for sharing this!

Really good video, amazing process. 

Shame he says he can't play it, after all that work.  Seems he would want to learn a little bit so he could try it out some (needs to come to this Forum!). 

It does look beautiful, though.

It appears to me that he is using a olive wood trunk “disk” to make the rib/top block/tail block piece.  If so, he is glueing the top and bottom plates to “end grain” on the ribs.  This will cause a poor glue joint, given the microscopic “drinking straw” matrix of the end grain.  There are ways around this issue once apparent to the builder.

Similar could be done, and likely more effectively, using a band saw.  No rib bending obviously would be required.  And it may be possible to nest patterns one inside the other in a Russian Doll manner, to maximize use of the disk if one was building an array of different sized instruments.
