Notes from the Shop

What am I going to do with those dawn redwood boards up top? Logs found, cut and dried right here in town. That wall is made of trash too. I rule. #woodworking #wood #dawnredwood #bookmatched #salvage #workshop

One I made last year for someone who had a very clear vision of what they wanted. I can bring your vision to life too, no matter how unusual. 5 pc neck mahogany and Birdseye maple, rosewood fretboard, black limba top on one piece mahogany body. pickups by geppetto guitars in Austin tx. #customguitar #handmadeguitar #luthier #guitarporn #woodworkingporn #gold #white #blackandwhite #music #bostonmusic #smallbusiness #localbusiness #guitar #semi-hollow #chambered

Handmade mandolin nut from gaboon ebony. It is going on a resonator mando for a shop down the road who hired me to finish it up for them. You know how hard it is not to break one of these when the smallest strings are spaced basically 1mm apart? Most mandolins have a 30mm or so nut but this one has a 24mm nut which really cramps my style, pun fully intended. None the less, I am happy with this finished product. #lutherie #guitarbuilding #mandolin #cramped #woodworking #woodworkingporn #guitarporn #custom #exoticwood #ebony #nut #jewelersvice
