I have been remiss in keeping the blog posted with progress of the “Hatch” instruments.
The woodwork on the Violin has been completed and it is in wood treatment process before being sealed and hanging in the sun before varnishing.
The Viola is in my workshop for the week to have the inside sealed and acoustic measurements made before the top is glued on next Wednesday and the neck set in the body.
This work will essentially complete the work on these two instruments until they are ready for varnish in the spring. My plan is to continue to work at HatchSpace through the winter, but perhaps not as much nor as regularly. I will be looking for other ways to follow the work of my fellow “Hatchers”.
