Revival Methods - David of Santa Barbara Mission Statement

I put this together recently. It's a summary of my aims. I wrote this partly as a mission state for myself, and partly as a draft of something to show to anyone who wants to know a bit more about my work.
The familiar modern approach to violin making is to 'copy' classic Italian instruments. People talk about making a 'Del Gesu Cannone', a copy of Paganini's Guarneri violin. So my approach of 'reviving classical methods' runs against the current norms.
So now I'm trying to figure out how to communicate a sense of the why and how of my work without asking people to read a few hundred pages of research.
