The shaft preparation:
Carbon fiber and epoxy are used to build the shaft in the molding plant. After that, shafts were sent to our workshop for selection, refine and varnish.

The Frog,Button preparation:
A precise bench saw is used to cut ebony (or other materials) into blank blocks. Special milling machines and lathes are used to shape them. Files and sandpapers are used to polish and finish their shape. Their grades are categoriesed by smoothness of the wood surface and natural color of the wood. Then metal parts supplied by jewelry maker will be fit into the wood(horn,shell) parts. And then polish and re-cateforiese and ready for fitting onto the shaft.Click to see making process.
