Every time I take apart a guitar and find it’s had some rough repair work done in the past, I make a promise to keep trying to always do my best work, and to improve on past successes so that, in the future, a luthier isn’t cursing my name as ‘e works on a project I had my hands on. #iAmNotAPerfectionistIAmARightist

I’m always seeking more efficent ways to run my business. I’m fortunate to have so much to do! In an effort to serve my clients better, I am going to try a new kind of business schedule. I’ll still work my 50 hour workweek, but my Open-To-The-Public hours are going to look a little different. Starting this spring I will be open Monday-By Appointment; Tuesday-Friday 12-4. Closed on weekends. This will allow me to capitalize on my best working hours of the day to do your repairs and restoration projects better. Looking ahead to brighter times. Thank You!

For many reasons, it’s banjo day. Here’s an old #tenorbanjo I transformed into a short-scale #fivestring for Mr. Ollah quite a while back. She’s now in the stable of @fourmileportage and is singing sweet, with a new skin and some tweaking.

New Tool Day! I received this beautiful hook knife from Del at #pinewoodforge today. Included was a hand-written note telling me that the handle wood for this knife comes from Del’s supply of hardwood scraps gotten from the Martin Guitar Factory 1930’s to 1950’s. So cool! I’ll be enjoying this tool for many years. Takk!

25 years ago some friends dug an aloe in a New Mexican desert. I’ve been tending the family line since then, and it’s flowering for the first time. Keep cultivating your little babies, you never know when they are going to blossom.
