Did you know?
It is very important when we cut down the trees we will use for the fiddle. Pavli says it is best between the Assumption of Mary and the Nativity of Mary, or in August, four hours after the full moon. When the needles start to fall off and the leaves turn yellow, the tree should be cut down immediately. Then the wood must rest - for years. The spruce for eight years and the maple for full ten.
Pavli Skaza is a treasurer of fiddle knowledge and a true master of craftsmanship. You will immediately feel his love of crafts, while you will be overwhelmed by the tradition and impressed by its breadth.
