Violin Making: The Practice of a Tradition of Woodworking with Douglas Cox

Douglas Cox, a German trained violin maker with 52 years experience, will explain and explore the process from a wood workers perspective, demonstrating materials, tools, and techniques. While much of the process is specific to violin making and can only be inspirational or thought provoking for most wood workers, the bulk of the work is refined woodworking, a slight variant on what all woodworkers do every day.

The talk included lots of parts and tools to handle, and demonstrations of many of the techniques Doug thought would be of interest, including joining, carving, bending, and gluing.
