Workshop in Ottawa

Posted on | September 2, 2009 | 1 Comment|

This is one of the rooms in the new workshop. These workbenches are used for making instruments. I have another room for restoration work further down the hall. By the entrance I have an office with my library and space to try instruments.

At the moment I’m making another copy of a Del Gesu violin, which is on the left hand bench. Above on the shelves are varnish materials and various tools. My laptop sits on the bench with some recording equipment and UV light mounted underneath.

On the right side is a taller bench with the sides for a cello.

The view from my window looks onto St. Anthony Church and down Gladstone Avenue.

    I am interested in learning how to make violins. Do you give courses?

    Thanks
