Welcome to my website

I have been building handcrafted musical instruments since 1978. In rural Bedford, Virginia,working alone in a wood shop I designed and built, I have developed designs for ten different acoustic instruments. I am constantly working on research and development, sometimes alone, sometimes in collaboration with customers and professional musicians. I am always striving to build better quality instruments and am never content with the status quo. No assembly lines, just a lot of individual attention from start to finish. I can work with you to individualize your instrument or provide you with one I have created. I try to keep my prices affordable so music making can be a part of your life.
