Thanks T-Gripped. The old boxes make building historical. Old, like me. I get pleasure from them. Carving the peg box is fun too. It says “fiddle” to me.

Those boxes are wonderful. Getting hard to find the old ones.I really like the carved peg boxes. I'm gonna have to give that a go some time. Very, very nice work!!

Thanks Bones, AGP, Poorness. I love the old boxes. Like fruit crates, they have great lettering and images. The wood is great for tone and patina.

A real "Beauty Parade" Dave!  :-)

I really like all of them Dave, but I think that short factory smoker is my favorite. It's hard to say though. They're all really unique.

Thanks Uncle. Thanks Ambrose. I like the two strings for now Uncle. I have quite a few 3 stringers from past builds. I’ll get into them as well when I get bored with 2.

Great looking bunch.  Dave, I am still trying to figure out if I like 2 or 3 and what scale.  A mostly fun journey.

That's a fine looking family of fiddles Dave!
