Hello everyone my name is Stephen, I am in the process of making a Carbon fibre violin. I am an Aerospace engineer and know all about carbon fibre but as I know little about violins I am being helped in this area by Peter Boardman http://www.peterboardmanviolinmaker.co.uk/
The making of the molds and construction of the violin will be easy for me but it will take a few prototypes to get the tonal values to Peters satifaction, once complete I hope to sell these, as I work full time and this is a part time project I will only make a few to start and then make to order. I have the top plate finished and will have the bottom plate, sides and neck (in one piece) complete next week. I will upload images of the top plate and the rest when complete. If you are interested in this project email and let me know.
