As a longtime musician and a woodworker it was only a matter of time before both interests led me to building and repairing musical instruments.  I  began this exploration turning segmented drums and eventually moved on guitars and other stringed instruments.  This is challenging work which requires a great deal of skill and knowledge.

I offer a broad range of services from setups and minor adjustments to complete restorations and custom instruments.  On my website you will find photo essays of representative and interesting repairs that I am currently working on and have done in the past.

I have more than 15 years of woodworking experience, 8 of which have been focused primarily on luthiery. I owe my mentor, Gene Warner of Krazy Kat Music, a great deal for his lessons and encouragement. Please feel free to contact me with questions, suggestions or comments.
