The Stradivari "Viotti" 1709 violin!!

Thanks to all of you who voted at our Grand Opening Celebration and on the website.  The "Viotti" violin won by a landslide:

1st place: Stradivari "Viotti" 1709 with 12 votes

2nd place: tie between Stradivari "Kruse" 1721 & Matteo Goffriller 1700 with 6 votes each

3rd place: Nicolo Amati 1666 with 5 votes

4th place: G.B. Rogeri 1704 with 2 votes

In the meantime, I will begin to draft up the templates and mold for the rib structure.  Stop by in the next few weeks to check on my progress.
