Welcome to this Violin Making home page. Among the things you will find here are: The works of Hans Johannsson, violin maker, including samples of sound and pictures of his instruments,as well as various violin related texts.. Also you will find entries on wood, varnish, glue, tools, design/proportion and instrument care. These pages will be revised and improved on a regular basis and hopefully will become more comprehensive in times to come, and eventually become a valuable resource connected to violin related information, useful for teachers, musicians and those interested in the general aspects of stringed instrument development and current trends.
