The Day of Reckoning

It's time for me to rebuild my violin. In keeping up with demand it has been put off to many times. Amongst it's many problems, that have been worsened by neglect, I need to remove the neck. Tricky business at best.

The Projection is wrong due to the upper block being loose from the table. That pressure started a crack on the center seam that I need to head off before it gets worse.
The neck had been fitted with a shim, to correct the projection, this did not solve the problem, as the neck continued to pull against the end grain and distort the top.

I hope I don't ruin it, I like this fiddle.
Let see... separating knife, mallet, courage..

How about some suspense music?
