Welcome to the world of fiddle building! The fiddle kit you're about to build has a quality spruce top with curly maple sides and back. This kit is designed for the beginner and intermediate builder, with enough of the difficult work already done to give you a great head start. The fine handwork is left to you, with the help of these instructions.

You'll need a flat work surface, approximately 2' x 4' or big enough for your fiddle.

Please read these instructions before starting on your fiddle, so you'll understand the process and how the parts fit:
