A Vermont luthier builds a violin for musicians in need
About a week ago, Jacob Brillhart began shaping and sanding a 10 pound piece of aged wood into a violin. It’ll take a few weeks before it’s varnished and finished. And he’s live streaming much of the process on his Facebook page.
Vermont luthier Brillhart is volunteering to build a violin this month, as part of an effort to raise money for musicians hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic.
