Making a violin using an outside mold

Making an outside mold violin is not a new technique, its been in use for many, many years. I have been making instruments using inside molds for years and now I am trying out the inside mold technique. I will be comparing the two building techniques as I go along. So far, the inside mold seems easier to me. Strad’s instruments were also made using the inside molds. I’ll keep you posted on my progress.  (click images to view larger)
