Cellos in Ottawa

Posted on | June 29, 2009 | 1 Comment|

cellos

On my centre bench is a new cello with a poplar back that’s almost complete. I am now giving the varnish a final polish and setting up the instrument.

In the foreground is the beginning of another cello. The back, sides and neck will be made from maple. In the photo the two centre ribs are bent and attached around the form.

The design used for both cellos is based around an Antonio Stradivari cello from 1701. It will be interesting to hear the difference between the maple and poplar, both of which Stradivari also used.
