The Mold of the Instrument

The Mold of the Viol The first step in making a viol is to prepare the mold, around which the ribs are being built. Blocks of pine are glued into the mold on each of the four corners and at the top and the bottom of the mold. These are the very first parts that are made, which remain inside the instrument, although not in this exact shape. They will be trimmed at a later point, before the top is glued onto the ribs.
