How a Violin is Made
One of my favorite TV channels is Discovery. It features a bunch of reality-type shows, such as “Deadliest Catch” and “Dirty Jobs” that make me really appreciate the ho-hum (but temperature-controlled) experience of the office-cube environment.
One of my favorite shows, though, is “How It’s Made.” The episodes are short and slick, and they provide insights into how common household items and tools are built. I found a particularly cool episode on making a violin. It’s quite interesting how many instrument-making techniques are used for making furniture. Check it out.
