Making Sawdust

I have been a luthier, repairing & building guitars, since 1990. But it was only a few years ago that I was inspired to build projects not related to stringed instruments. The freedom to create new ideas outside of my comfort zone is extremely liberating and fun.

While only a hobby, I am happy to build something for you. Contact me with your idea and I’ll work with you to bring it to life.
