Tone wood back 2010 "Soil" project

Post date: Jun 23, 2014 8:0:22 AM

To match the top I plan to heat treat the back wood for 60 min in 150-160 °C. I'm not sure if this one was from Cremona but I had to negotiate to be able to buy it. I found it on a shelf where I was not supposed to look at. I promised the seller to make an excellent violin from it, and I'm for sure planing to make him amazed and a little bit jealous :)

Baked the wood in 160 °C until it stopped loosing weight; 2 hours and 15 min.

The wood did not change much in color
