"Luther's Fiddle"

My daddy, LUTHER JOSEPH AUSTIN, made this Fiddle when I was about 10 years old, around 1956. I remember him using a broken piece of glass to shave it down. He soaked it in water and clamped the wood down and kept adjusting the clamps daily to force it to bow, then dry. Just like a professionally made on. I remember him playing music on it many times.
