Here is a picture that shows all the main violin components. I have now to close the body, insert the neck and finish the handle. And after that, varnish and set-up the instrument.

As you may see on the next picture. I have started the assembly of the violin. I have glued the ribs on the bottom plate. And I have added the linings on the top side.

I also added a label to identify the violin. And associate it to the "Young Musicians of the World":

Thinning the plates

As you can see below, I have carved the inside of the plates (Top and Bottom) to remove the unnecessary wood. I am know carving them to reach the right thickness and the right flexibility:

Violin plates

As soon as the plates will be tunes, I will be able to cut the f-holes, and add the bass-bar on the top plate.

The last violin I made has the same design than the violin I am currently making for the Young Musicians of the World. I just finished to varnish it. I have now to polish it before setting it up. The next pictures show this violin before being polished. For the Young Musicians of the World violin, I will use the same varnish. Those picture will let you see the look and the color that will have the YMW violin. The varnish is a home made oil varnish that give an golden/amber color with some red tint in it.
