When you write things like this you only show the kind of person you are. And its not the first, second, third etc. time
I´m not going into any further discussions with you dude because can imagine that you are only up to trolling the foro and mess it up for others and dealing with members like you just make me feel dirty and ruins my day.
Go away troll.

RE: Small signs of life (in reply to constructordeguitarras

So I bought this poster with dimensions on the backside from thestrad.com.

Its a Jacob Stainer violin from 1679. A Baroque Violin

Maybe this autum/winter I will start building a baroque violin. The reason I chosed the Stainer is:

* The only violin made by "the old masters" that I have tried was a Stainer and it was the sweatest little thing I have tried. Very good for everything pre-romantic era and for fiddling. Being Jazz or folk.

*Its the only poster of a true baroque violin out there. All the others have been converted.

I will not make a 100% copy, mainly because wood is always different and what Stainer used may have had a different density or stiffnes than what I will use. but I will try to respect the original as much as possible. It has a very nice neckangle. Not totally flat and still very baroque. The back is extremely thin. Less than 1,5mm in many places. and I have a feeling that I should go somewhere close to that to get the real elegant Stainer feel. We´ll see what happens. :-)

If anyone here is interested in learning a bit about the difference between baroque violins and modern violins, here´s a link to a pretty decent and at the same time "light" article that can serve as an introduction.

Just a small celebration.

A few days ago, my blog had its visitor number 100.000
I know very well that its nothing in the www blog world, but for me its a small sign of still being alive.
So thanks to all of you who have supported my work so far.

Thanks both of you.
Ethan, I you have the time, building a small lapstrake boat is some of the most enjoyable on earth. There´s something about the lines of the strakes. You can just sit and look at them and dream away. A wondefull way of wasting time.

RE: Small signs of life (in reply to Anders Eliasson

Just the other day my son and I were reminiscing about our visit to the Viking ship museum on Bigdøy in the Oslo harbor. Every element of the Gokstad ship is purely functional in design. There is absolutely no superfluous decoration. It is one of the most beautiful objects I have ever seen.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gokstad_ship#/media/File:Gokstadskipet1.jpg

RNJ

..my son was 12 years old then, 34 years ago. The other day he asked me whether I remembered what I had said, after we admired the ship in silence for several minutes on that snowy winter afternoon.

"Yes. I said, 'Wouldn't it be fun to go to England in that, in the summertime.' "

RE: Small signs of life (in reply to constructordeguitarras

Yes, these viking ships are impressive. We have a few hanging around here in Denmark as well. Both original ones in museums and replicas that are being used.

My personal taste is for smaller crafts and I have a soft spot for Yacht tenders like this Iain Oughtred "Puffin"
That is glued plywood lapstrake/clinker

RE: Small signs of life (in reply to constructordeguitarras

I like to keep things simple. So instead of the usual white/black/white purfling, this one has a 1,5mm thick solid cypress purfling.

Very nice, Anders. I do something similar with maple, but your cypress makes a different effect because it is so uniform and smooth looking.

+1 for being very nice. Anders. I like the contrast of the cypress and the RW.

RE: Small signs of life (in reply to constructordeguitarras

The purfling looks great, good proportions, I can see how violin making has worked for you. I've never liked finicky line work because it is anti violin making and the guitar definition of edges and shape suffers for the decorative edges that have become popular on guitars.

I just cut down a tree similar to Poplar and have it at the resawyer's place now. I'm waiting to get it back as 4mm sheets which sliced at 1.5 mm will make about two miles of purfling.

RE: Small signs of life (in reply to constructordeguitarras

Thanks for your comments.
the guitar has been finished and is for sale, There are more photos on my blog.



And as a final note:
The last couple of years have been very hard on foroflamenco IMHO. Thats something that has touched me deeply and its the main reason I have been less present for a long time. .
At this very moment I cannot see myself joining another internet based lutherie forum. Iḿ simply said sick and tired of the WWW. Life will go on and find us in other places.
Enjoy life :-)
Anders

To you too, Anders. Guitar sounds really beautiful; I respect your judgement on dryness and sustain.

RE: Small signs of life (in reply to constructordeguitarras

Thanks both of you.
The dryness - sustain discussion is interesting. I have my own views on the subject, but since they may differ a bit from mainstream ideas and because I have problems with language, I dont feel like joining the discussion. Its to easy to be misunderstood and run over by a truck on this site and frankly said, I have run out of energy on this point. Silence is sweet.

The above guitar is #129 from 2016. Its a Sitka spruce blanca with a very old fashion sound and pulsation. It sounds and feels old. It requires a player that understands that and I was fortunate that Antonio bought it because he really knows how to dig out the personality of an instrument and is capable of playing many different kinds of guitars. He also plays a Cedartop hybrid negra of mine and he makes that one sound absolutely wonderfull and very different from the above.
The sitka blanca is a very rewarding guitar for those understanding it, but its not everyones taste

Anders,

If who you are talking about is me then rest assured that I'm here to support your art not trash it. You are a talented person.

I think there is enough room for both of us, without getting into any disagreement. I realize very clearly that there are many ways to build a guitar and this is my commitment to stay with-in a cordial discussion, if there is a discussion.

Stay well and prosper.

Tom, dont worry, it wasn't adressed towards you or anyone else in particular. I guess I'm just tired of some things here, including language issues. Maybe I shouldn't have written what I did.
Take it easy, all is good.

Just to be clear, I'm curious, you used cypress for that wide purfling line? What is the dimension of that line?

Not Anders, but: He says that it's 1,5mm thick. Or are you asking for other dimensions like depth?

RE: Small signs of life (in reply to constructordeguitarras

yes... I'm not dead yet.
My first handmade rosettes were zig-zag rosettes inspired by Charley Browns sweater. Its been many years (+ 12 )with no zig-zags in my life, so here´s one made out of bloodwood, maple and ebony. zig-zags on tieblock as well. For the moment its not for sale. It has almost everything I want in a flamenco guitar. Trust me, there will always be something, maybe very small missing in life, but this one is very close to my wet flamenco dreams.
