Handcrafted Instruments & Restoration

Classical Guitars

My guitar making work is focused on crafting classical guitars in the Spanish style,  influenced by the masters of guitar making from the early 1800's to mid 20th century.  I use traditional techniques and designs, refined by generations of luthiers to craft guitars which aim to possess the sound, aesthetic and spirit of the old world guitars. 

Custom Stringed Instruments

My work also includes custom projects made to order, collaborating with customers on design, tone wood selection, finishing options and specific dimensions to produce unique instruments including lute family instruments, gut & steel string guitars based on historical, as well as contemporary designs/styles .

Restoration & Repair Work

I also repair & restore plucked & bowed instruments including violins, bows, guitars & mandolins.  My original trade is bow making and over the past 25 years I've continually broadened my experience, knowledge and skills to learn the correct techniques and skills to restore instruments to authentic, optimum condition.
