I am an amateur builder of small, simple, stringed instruments.

My background is mainly Octave Mandolin and Guitar,

I have experimented with the Mandocello, Bouzouki, Wood Top Banjo, and Cello Banjo.

I  hope to try a Baroque Guitar, Tenor Guitar, and other things.

I also hope to refine my craft and retire from general carpentry as a Luthier.

  Thanks for visiting.
