16″ Tertis Amati Viola, 2015

This viola is my personal model. The outline is based upon a Lionel Tertis. The scroll is based upon a Brothers Amati. All remaining aspects are of my own design based upon the Brescian, Cremonese, & Venetian schools. The two piece top is made from figured European Spruce with consistent narrow grain from center to edges. The one piece back is made from European Maple with softer wide flames in the upper and middle bouts transitioning to medium width flame in the lower bout. The ribs are made from European Maple with consistent medium width flame on the upper and lower bouts. The c-bouts are of inconsistent medium and wide flame. The scroll is made from consistent medium depth and medium width European Maple. The Varnish is made from lindseed oil and colophony. It is a transparent amber orange color and was left in its pristine state.
