Here are a few photos from the show:

This is how the room looked with just the makers present. We had 500+ people show up each day.

This fellow (standing, below) is Bob Oswald-- he asked me to coach him through building his first violin...we hope to begin this summer. Notice the empty space on the table directly in front of me-- the five-string fiddle was out being played, again.

This is how our table looked before anyone started showing up.

Since the five-string fiddle ultimately sold, I have begun another one just like it. I hope to have it done by mid June.

Those are some good shots, Chet. I didn't realize you were a MIMF-er, or I would have stopped by to say hello. I probably walked by your table 4 times!

I had gone with the intention of doing some photo-documentation of this great little show to post here. Turns out, I only took one picture. Look folks, it's David King! And this is the bass that appeared on the first color cover of American Lutherie!

Well--I saw Mr. King many times, but was busy at our table, so I never knew what he made. Sorry you didn't stop by. I did talk to two or three from Maestronet, as I used to spend time over there...but that's all.

Nothing fancy-- just maple and spruce. Sounded good, though.
