I am an amateur builder of small, simple, stringed instruments. I also build other things. My background in instrument building is mainly Octave Mandolin and Guitar, I have experimented with other large mandolins, Electric Mandolins, and Wood Top Banjos. All of my instruments are 100% handmade in my small workshop. Thanks for visiting. This website loads slowly.
