Inlaying the Purflings

Purflings are the decorative inlays highlighting the edges on the faces and backs of most stringed instruments. Since the first violins were made in the 16th Century, purflings have been consistently a key component of the aesthetic of violins, violas and cellos. A tiny sandwiching of three woods of contrasting colors is set in a carved channel that travels along the edge of the entire front and backside of the instrument. Aside from adorning the instrument, purflings may add flexibility to the top plate while reinforcing the plate's edge against cracks running with the wood grain. First, materials must be selected to create the purflings. These vary widely among violinmakers. The two outer strips tend to be made darker, while the inner strip is of lighter color. Some use ebony for the dark strips, though it is a hard and unbending wood. Others may use maple for all three, while coloring the outer strips in a dying process using Lockwood and ferrous...

why not humility?
WHY NOT HUMILITY? Erle Frayne Argonza / Ra Why not be humble at all moments Of association with fellowmen? Didn’t the shopworker teach you That one rudiment of survival Is the intelligent recognition Of your limitations’ omnipresence Inspite of endowments of craft & wealth? For there too are circumstances That are beyond you grasps In the snares of Naivete And may even cause a furor Of gig and limitless giggle? For Boastfulness and Arrogance Are twin eagles of deception That once they’d lift you aflight They’d shake you off the winds to crash Tragically on the solid ground Of defeat and humiliation? O! Humility! You are a noble messenger That speaks for transparent Security One that makes a person immensely cherished By the commonwealth of all men. [Writ. 05 June 1988, Proj. 8, Quezon City, M.Manila] REFLECTION Being an islander in Asia, born a Filipino, I was taught... (more)
