The violin is a cute little instrument but also, as I learned from watching this video of violin maker (or luthier) John Young, a really interesting instrument to make. It's artfully designed and carefully shaved down and is still made in a similar way from when it first appeared centuries ago.

Young makes each violin personal and he hopes that his violins can last for hundreds of years (and get better sounding!) like Stradivariuses
