Well it is not a traditional shape at all obviously but it does work! I previously made another violin post with a violin that looked more traditional and borrowed the neck from that violin to attach onto this one. I bought a piece of Black and White Ebony on Ebay last Saturday for the body of this violin. It is my favorite wood as of current. It is quiet heavy and dense. So I got one heavy violin but it is manageable after I hollowed it out. I sprayed a clear coat of glossy lacquer over the whole thing. I think this is the one I will be playing for awhile or atleast trying to play....

First off, very nice work!

Maybe, off topic since it's not wood related, but why is the violin strung backwards? In my experience it's usually lower strings on the left with the neck up.

To answer that question, that it is a left handed violin just for me!
