Ancient tools for violin, viola and cello crafting

Today we have many high-precision instruments that speed up the various stages of work, but the old luthiers of the past, like the most famous Amati, Guarneri, Stradivari, managed anyway to create the splendid instruments that we still admire today. Fascinated by their history, after various researches I managed to build various tools that I use for the construction of my instruments: chisels, planers, compasses, clamps and a thickness measurement tool ( of which I am very proud: that tool allows with extreme simplicity to work in a neater way). I like to call myself a luthier of the past but I want to also be attentive to the needs of today’s musicians.
