Introduction: Card Board Violin

Picture of Card Board Violin

I love making things out of paper and card board, so four days ago my sister told me about Instructables and she told me it was having a cardboard challenge. So I decided that I would make something for it. Being a violinist I think about violins all the time, so I thought "hey" I should make a cardboard violin. So I did. It didn't turn out as nice as I'd hoped but it did turn out better than I thought it would.
I made it almost exactly like they make a real violin. I even included a card board sound post and base board on the inside.
I had a lot of fun making it.

Would you be using real violin strings? if you did, would it make sound?

Does it make a sound at all?

And where's your cardboard bow? ;-)

BethyJoy (author)Kiteman2012-07-13

Unfortunately it doesn't make a sound.

The bow should be coming next.

It is a very well made job. :)

Any chances that you post a proper instructable on how you made this? ;)

BethyJoy (author)capricorn2012-07-13

I plan to make a instructables later. I was running out of time for the cardboard challenge so I just posted pics.

Oh wow!! That's really cool. Does it work?

BethyJoy (author)shadowfeet2012-07-13

The original plan was to make it work but when it was done I couldn't get enough tension.
