This is my main bench in the workshop where I work every day on the second floor at 319  Catherine Street. (The workshop is now at 792 Gladstone Avenue   click here for www.guyharrison.com)

On the bench at the moment I’m finishing a copy of a Guarneri Del Gesu violin (Lord Wilton, ex-Menuhin) made in 1742. (I admit I cleaned the bench for this photo!)

I decided to start a workshop blog because there always seems to be interesting work happening in the shop and in my travels as a violin maker.

I thought this would be great way to let people know what we are up to. This blog is not really intended for other makers but for people interested in seeing what goes on in our violin workshop.
