    I built a cabinet for my violins!

    Hey folks! It's been a while! But the projects keep on going, this one having dragged on for way too long!
    When you have a few too many violins hanging around, it's best to make them a safe home, and that's what we did in this video!

    Nice work - that looks good.

    I'd probably go buy several cigar humidifiers to put inside and maintain a controlled humidity inside the case so that the instruments don't dry out in the wintertime.
    If you can't make it precise make it adjustable.

    Thanks!
    Actually the entire workshop is a 'cigar box', with humidifiers and dehumidifiers, to keep it between 40-60% humidity year-round!

    That's even better and nice.
