We want to hear about your successes and your "oops" related to fiddle making. What's your favourite wood, your best design, your most beautiful stain? Do you carve your own scroll? Do you make your own pegs? Let us know what you are up to. And don't by shy about asking questions. Our 2003 members have lots of advice and encouragement to offer.
I've been looking at some nice, close-grained maple for my next fiddle. What is a reasonable price to pay? The fellow I talked to wants $500 for enough wood for two fiddles. I really want it but I don't want to get "taken for a ride."
