If any one does graphic design and need to expand you portfolio message me. I need a logo ish thing and business cards.
I have my plates cut out and rough arched. It’s a lot of fun, I’m enjoying making my first cello a lot. Other than that I’ve been studying instrument identification and have been looking into valuing my double bass for sale since I never play it anymore.
just an update for the very few classical musicians on here who follow me, or the one or two other violin makers.
I just started my last year at csvm. I started a cello, a model of which i copied that the school doesn’t have, so this is going to be the Venetian version of a Strad Cello made by Montagnana. I finished up that bass restoration, started another violin restoration (much smaller in comparison) that i began at Oberlin this summer. It will probably take a while with how many other things i’m trying to do with my last year at school and maybe in Chicago.
I got a job at Seman Violins in Skokie. The shop is ran and owned by Peter Seman who is the current president of the AFVBM (federation of violin and bow makers). I helped the shop out with their busy fall/back to school/ rental season, and I will probably begin more serious work and training. The shop is down the street from my school.
I’m also trying to get this strad viola i started in 2009 finished (the viola i made primarily in Kansas City and set it aside for a while).
I updated my about me section. Essentially just adding new experiences and making my resume look PRETTY SWEET.
