So for a while now I wanted to branch out a little for CBGs and build me a violin. Well the time finally came and it was hard for me to find videos, forums, or anything on the building process (Yes even on this site it was hard) So I decided that if I was going to do a build I better makes some videos and a blog post or something about it. So that is what I did. The videos are not as "polished" as I like but I kept have technical difficulties with my cameras and mics and stuff, but I think in the end there is still a lot of good information for anyone wanting to take on a fiddle build.
Here is video 1 "How to build a Cigar Box Violin"
Video 2 "Sound Check"
My Blog post on my website that has good pictures and explanations of the process and also some plans in pfd that, you can print out ;)
Well, I hope you guys like the information, thank you all for all the good stuff that is already on this site:)

Gorgeous fiddle, and I enjoyed the videos! Thanks for sharing!

That's inspirational! (For me.) Been wanting to build a fiddle for a while. Very nice!

Good job! Thanks for sharing.
