    Below are some photos of a repair job that Zai performed in early 2009. The task was to remove the top plate, adjust the base bar of the violin, and finally, glue the top plate back on. It is a very delicate process with a great end product - suitable for use at concerts such as o2 priority gigs.

    1. Removing the top plate

    2. Repairing the base bar

    3. Preparing to glue the top plate back on

    4. Waiting for the glue to settle
