Cello Wood

Luthiers, whats the standard sizes of the timber you purchase, and how many violins can you make out of them?

i'm a architecture student designing a workshop for a luthier, but i cant find anywhere on the web explaining how many violins can be made from maple, or spruce timber planks. once i have this information i can work out how much space is needed to store these timbers. thank you

you really need to talk to the luthier that you are designing the space for. Will he be buying his wood in Billet form and thus storing large pieces? Will he be making cello's and basses, thus storing large pieces? How much wood is he going to store or is he just going to buy basically what is needed for a few instruments. As a maker, I have purchased billets the size of a string bass. I have also cut down some of my own trees, notably Willow, that has lasted me my entire career. Standard single instrument wood planks which are for a single violin in a one piece size is approx. 1" x 9" x 16", slightly larger for violas (a two piece back is only about 5" wide). Cello wood is approx. 2" x 10" x 36" (very few makers make 1 piece cello backs. I have had several shops, the smallest (the one I have now) is only about 8' x 12' all inclusive with bench, power tools, hand tool storage and material storage - it is just a corner of my garage. My largest shop included retail space and was 2800sf.
