We were recently approached by a restorer of string instruments to see if we could help speed up the restoration process, whilst in no way impacting on the hand-built quality of the 100 – 400 year old instruments.
The solution was to laser scan the back and front of the instrument then offset the surface so it could be hand finished. Literally days of roughing out saved whilst retaining hand finishing by an expert.
