Wow, now there is a talent which would intimidate me to even THINK about doing! Good for you.

Welcome to Tool Talk!
Luthiers have some special wood working tools, let's see some?

Howdy and welcome from Arkansas.  I would also enjoy seeing some of these tools.

Welcome indeed.  And we do like pictures here.   I could use some information on dealing with very obstinate button shellac.  My old flakes aren't dissolving well at all, and I'm not having much luck with the new buttons I picked up either.  Used to be the easiest thing ever,  but I seem to have attracted an infestation of shellac gremlins.

Lynn Dowd of Dowdstools has a luthier group demonstrating at his sales quite often.

Wow, impressive stuff. Welcome aboard.

Just to show you how ignorant I am...I thought "Luthier" was a guy by the first name "Lex" who was always causing trouble for Superman!

Violins seem WAY too difficult for a poor ol' car-collectin' tool lover like me. I'm looking forward to your posts with photos.
