He served in the US Air Force service in Scotland as a communications officer.

Preface to the Third Edition
The second edition had only minor revisions, and this third edition is unchanged except for the important addition of data and drawings for making an artist class "7/8" size cello. Happily the exhaustion of the second edition coincided with the publication of my first video which illustrated the making of such a cello. Looking at the Afterword in this book, I wonder at the changes, the continued growth in violin making and in sales of these books, the ever increasing use of computers, E-mail, doing business on the internet, and our inevitable introduction of a video. But we still make and like our fiddles the old way.
Addendum for a 7/8 Size Cello
Violin Making Live! or Watch Me Make a Cello, Step by Step, is Henry Strobel's first video. In it he demonstrates and explains the violin maker's procedures and processes (common to violin, viola, and cello), using a cello as the example. Fortunately the cello model, adapted from a 7/8 size J. B. Guadagnini, made a wonderful sounding instrument in a size just right for a neglected minority of cellists. The documentation to reproduce it, lacking in the video, is published as an addendum to this Third Edition of Cello Making, Step by Step at the center of the book, just above the 4/4 size drawings. Readily removable for use, its pages are numbered A1 through A12, leaving the pagination of the basic book unchanged for reference reasons.
