there is a new solution ;), by using CAD/CAM mediums. I project a violin in Catia v5 and then I execute the top plate and back plate on a CNC mill. I have attached to my draw a small database from where I can modify these plate how I want... the process for a plate takes me about 3 hours... but I have the mm precision...

Thanks for a great site :-) Two small comments - the measurements page doesn't indicate whether metric or imperial measurements - that has to be inferred from the numbers, and no length is given for the linings (pre bent) - this would be useful information for the beginning builder

And your readers might be interested in my home-made bending iron - much cheaper than a commercial one (around $10 for the water pipe) and just uses a heat gun - it's effective (having made a violin an a mandolin with it). Instructions can be found here:
