Planing the violin did not take as much time as preparing for it. :)

I had first try to measure existing plates thickness. For this I had to split the violin,
make myself a thickness calipper.

Bottom plate was already thinner as expected, so I just removed old varnish,
planed and sanded the plate.

Top plate was thicker as expected with bassbar which I decided not to touch.

The scroll of this russian violin looked very poor as if made just similar to what
a scroll should look like. So I deepened the "hair", carved bottom of the scroll for it to
look more elegant, also made a slight angle for the players hand to be more comfortable
while playing on e string.
