BloGMostly daily photo updates of goings-on at the shop. Sometimes a surprise.
This old tenor banjo is almost ready to play music again. New fingerboard, stick reset, and isn’t it a pretty thing? #workasusual

I was just a kid when I started up my shop in Canal Park. I was 24 years old and I stepped into a new world when I opened for business. I learned a lot along the way. Some 16 years later and things are moving along. Work is good, but I’m bound for something even better. I recently accepted a job at Bad Axe Tool Works where I’ll be building the world’s finest handsaws for Mr. Mark Harrell. I’ll be closing down my shop in Canal Park in the coming months, but don’t despair! I’ll still be doing instrument restoration and repair out of my home shop. I’ll also finally have time to get to all the custom building projects people keep requesting. @badaxe6 @michael_of_mountains

When this #gibsones125 came in, the heel was cracked in two, and someone in days gone by had used a couple wood screws to secure it to the body. I got the heel back in one piece, rebuilt the dove tail, and am about to touch up the paint job before setting the neck and seeing what this beauty can do.
