A Violin Wood Filler Funny

My good friend, William Martin of Burlington, NJ, once told me the story of how he was cooking his violin filler on his coal stove in the kitchen when his friend Alfred G. Reynolds, a violin bow maker residing in North Philadelphia, knocked on his door.

After the usual greetings, Alfred exclaimed "Bill! What is that horrible smell?" Bill informed him that his secret wood filler that gave his violins that lovely Cremonase sound was cooking on the stove. Alfred promptly replied, "It may give violins a good tone, but it smells like dung!

Personally, I can agree about the smell, but when the filler was applied to the violin and the instrument was hung on a clothes line in the sun and dried, the wood took on a yellow color and the smell then became quite pleasing. Bill would apply several coats of amber varnish over the filler coat and his finished violin would indeed have an Italian-like tone.
