Cutting, Planing & Filing, Varnishing:

The shaft preparation:
Carbon fiber and epoxy are used to build the Carbon 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 give them a rough shape. Files and sandpapers are used to polish and finish their shape by hand. Their grades are categorized by grade of the wood surface and nature of the wood species. Then metal parts supplied by jewelry maker will be fited into the wood(horn, shell) by us. Though German style Bass Bows frogs are some different, but still basically about the same processes. And then final polish and re-categories need to be done, and by then they are ready for fitting onto the shaft. Click to see making process.
