Turning a violin from a humble block of wood into the perfectly balanced instrument we are all so familiar with takes a superb craftsman. Sit back and admire their exquisite work.
Once everything has been assembled, the violin is ready to be varnished. Here, Violin maker Walther Mahr displays a violin made purely from spruce, ready for varnishing. Traditionally made from both spruce and maple, these all-spruce versions are supposed produce an even better sound. Picture: Daniel Karmann/DPA/Press Association Images
