A tailpiece in Time

The factory violin I’m restoring came to me with an old ebony tailpiece in the tulip style.  Since i’m replacing the spruce fingerboard (yes spruce), with one of rosewood, I decided to make a matching tailpiece.    For those interested in making a similar tailpiece I documented the dimensions.  Here are some pictures of a preliminary tailpiece, along with to-scale pdf of the dimensions.
