My second violin named Katie

I completed making my second violin and my first violin bow in October 2020 in time to give it to my older son, Miguel, for his sixtieth birthday. I named the violin Katie after my only grandchild. My son has played violin since he was ten years old.

The stage of the Katie violin before setting the neck and carving it in early 2020. After finishing this, I cleaned the entire violin and prepared it for varnishing. I had to put on 28 coats of varnish over a period of five months to get the right color.
