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.
