    in making crack repairs have you used or heard of using fiberglass and epoxy, that is used to make boat repairs, instead of the wood patches to hold cracks together

  2. Patrick Bass says:

    How much do these patches affect the tonal quality of the instrument?

  3. Luthiers are awesome. I love how slow and gentle you work. you can't rush this kind of job.

  4. 2:00 Cleaning out 170 years of funk in the trunk

    It's true. You can never have too many clamps.
    The noise, however…. no bueno. I have total silence.

  6. 鑿?の切れ味がイマイチな気がする。。。

    i just bought an old HOPF with no finish left on it, the sound peg was held in with a string tied around it. It has 2 different dates inside, the main label has 5, 12, 08 and another date written in 1925, i think that is the date it was repaired. Like this violin many repairs and even 3 screws. When i plucked the strings it still had good sound but was told 1000 dollars minimum to repair. So i just started refinishing it for wall art. The case is worn and beaten but it came with extra strings, extra bow string and a music instruction book from 1861. Well worth the 50 dollars i paid for in just in history.

    Hello. What's the name of the clamp used in minute 6?

  10. I can't thank you enough for posting this. I love how you don't use accelerated time clips, and how there isn't any distracting background music.
    Great video.

  11. At what point does a violin like this become unserviceable? How many patches and cleats can the top receive before its resonance is diminished?

  12. Rameish Siva says:

    What a professional job 👍

  13. TheGlennLife says:

    Les Feuilles Mortes playing in the background. A+

  14. noise. Most irritating to hear while watching the fantastic work.

  15. Mario says:

    Did that woman in the background just say…"Caralho"?

  16. guy saunders says:

    Thank you for the videos sir. I wanted to share with you a technique of getting glue into the hard to get to diminishing ends of cracks with a little suction cup, the kind you might find holding a piece of crystal to a window. If you put a small pool of glue over the area, place the suction cup into the puddle and press, pull, press, pull, you will find it gets into the further reaches of a crack which traditional methods cannot reach. One question: at 15:28, why do you use hide glue instead of something more permanent, and should you not prepare the surfaces with moisture? Thanks.

  17. Trevor says:

    How much does all this damage then restoration affect the sound of the instrument?

  18. sadro 45 says:

    I bet this repair cost an eye and an arm

  19. Mario Tide says:

    The woman say "Caralho" ahahahaha. min 24.33.

  20. I have an old violin in my basement that is in terrible condition, and is really special to my family. Someday soon I hope to repair it so that my sister, who plays violin, can play it and it will stay with our family.

  21. Lemontations says:

    I really enjoyed watching you work. I wasn't intending on watching the whole video as it is a bit long, but I couldn't stop. Instrument repair is so fascinating!

  22. KnickBooks says:

    Very interesting! I don't mind the background noises – they don't obscure the voice, and it sounds like a real workshop should, with other craftsmen working and lots of activity.

  23. When set so many patches, how it affecting at the sound, you thinking about it? These patches change the setting of the deck.!? You without thinking repeat awful work your predecessors.

  24. Bob Mccann says:

    nothing worse than a video with all the odd sounds and distracting movement!

  25. Very informative and helpful. Thanks. The sounds of life in the background are great.

  26. Carl Rudd says:

    the background NOISES are disturbing as well as confusing. Plan better.

  27. bubayou says:

    I recently acquired an old violin that was stored in an attic
    for years. I removed the top to repair some of its’ cracks and noticed the wood
    is quite dry and brittle is there anything I can put on the wood to help
    preserve it that will not total destroy the sound quality of the violin ?

  28. Asmar Sim says:

    je suis luthier amateur …a marakech.

  29. inkva says:

    What ate the purpose of those sqare patches? (the old ones)

  30. Ethel Maud says:

    Thank you for showing this work. Very informative and impressive.

  31. Is there a magic formula for the number and size of cleats to use on a crack?

  32. I love working with hide glue. That is a wonderful brass clamp.

  33. P Heart says:

    So much confidence in your movements!

  34. I wished you had of showed how you removed the top.

  35. Raoul Tak says:

    Won't this affect the sound of the violin tremendously?

  36. PrincessFe1 says:

    What kind of glue is nest to use?

  37. Denis Kirin says:

    у меня у одного сложилось впечатление что "мастер" рукожоп? (((

  38. When applying patches, blocks, and graphs, do you use matching wood; for example, spruce for the top plate and maple for the back plate? Also, are the patches, blocks, and graphs that are used on the inside aligned to match the grain direction, or cross grain for added strength?
