Hello! 

image0.jpgImage Enlarger

I'm Batto,

I have an antique  violin that I need to fix up, it's always been a dream of mine to be able to work on violins. (always wanted to be a luthier) and learn how to play a violin.

I don't have a musical family so its a bit of an uphill battle half of the time as I'm on my own. So expect to see me a lot here... especially considering I ended up with a lot of time on my hands after a serious concussion from a car accident.

So Hello!

Batto! Hello sir.  I too think that restoring or building a violin from scratch is an interesting goal.  Keep updates on your progress!

Welcome! I'm just learning too, though I've been playing other instruments for 25 years. I'm a disabled veteran who also has a ton of time on their hands and I bother people constantly on this site and many others lol. Welcome to the club. people tend to be nicer here than that other forum

Hey Batto,

Thanks for the introduction and the picture. 🙂 It's always cool to actually have a face connected with the members IMO.

Our luthier discussions are increasing by a lot lately. Glad to have new DIY'ers on the site.

Thanks! Yes I have a lot of time on my hand and I've recently had fate shove a project into my hands I've wanted  to make for quite some time.  It's a rather unique violin, or rather I'm going to recreating my own version of something from the early 20th century. 

I recently made a bunch of violin clamps for the top and bottom plate of my violin, so that was a positive, and I found an old coffin case at a thrift store which needs to be fixed and re-glued.
