Violin Making: An Illustrated Guide for the Amateur, Second Edition Revised and Expanded

by Bruce Ossman

Making a beautiful violin is easier than you think! You don't have to be a professional luthier to build a handsome hand-crafted violin. All you need are just a few common tools, wood, and the simplified violin-making process found inside the newly revised and updated Violin Making.

The early version of this book helped many first-time instrument makers build their own stunning violins and their beautiful work is displayed inside in a new color photo gallery. Author and lifelong teacher Bruce Ossman uses his simple techniques and clear instruction to guide you through every single step of making a violin.

With the full-size patterns and detailed illustrations include, you will be on your way to crafting an instrument fit for an orchestra.

Inside Violin Makin, Second Edition:

  • Helpful step-by-step instructions, featuring hundreds of detailed illustrations
  • Ready-to-use patterns and templates for every piece of the instrument
  • A complete list of the common tools and wood you will need
  • Stunning and inspiring color photos of violins made by readers of the first edition of Ossman's Violin Making

    Comments about Violin Making: An Illustrated Guide for the Amateur, Second Edition Revised and Expanded :

    This text is made for the person that wishes to make a simple violin. It cuts a few corners to assist the novice. Everything is about simplicity and low budget. You are not expected to use power tools; just about a dozen hand tools are required. However, the project still requires you to purchase some tools from professional luthier supply firms. The results are so stunning most craftsmen go on to make several violins and refine their talents.
