Just a friendly reminder that Rosewood is transitioning to an appointment based business. I’ll still be at the shop my regular 40+ hours a week, but I’ll be able to dedicate my time to repair and restoration work. Once I get through some backlog, I’ll be able to start building custom instruments. Get ready! Keep bringing me your wounded, stringed instruments! Just call, text, or email to set up a time that works for us both. Thank You! 🙏 #nathanwpyle

It’s been a hard summer, but today I celebrate myself and my business as we turn one year older. I was 24 years old when I said yes to the idea of working for myself and I opened up a little stringed instrument repair shop in Canal Park. I have no idea how so many years have passed! I am 40 years old now and I have had the privledge to chart my own course for almost my entire adult life. It’s not always easy, but it is all mine. Yet, I owe this community everything. Without you and your continued support I wouldn’t be able to do this. So, thank you. Look for changes as summer gives way to fall! I plan to begin running an appointment-only style business to better keep to the repair and restoration work that is the lifeblood of my shop. Who knows what happens next? Also, Happy Birthday Albus.

I owe a lot to this guy. Several years ago he came into the shop to ask me to teach him how to play guitar. I told him I wasn’t teaching because I was so busy with restoration work. Long story short: he persisted and I changed my mind. Thanks, Tim! Been a great journey. #guitarlessons #lifelessons

The #sitar leads the way. Thanks @jimicoop2 for letting me get this one into shape! A wonderful project for my Monday.

A P-Bass came in with a custom, solid metal neck half installed. Someone had attempted to install by using the original wood screws that came with the instrument and snapped two of them off in the sockets before stopping. I was able to get them out cleanly and I kept all the work under the neckplate, so it’ll be an invisible repair. After patching up the body, I’ll get this thing reinstalled with the proper machine screws and see what kind of sustain a solid metal neck provides.

Kid 1: “I don’t understand what this has to do with piano.” Kid 2: “Don’t worry. Michael always has a plan.”

It’s been quite a summer. When you run your own business it becomes necessary to weave together the personal and professional aspects of life or else you wind up not taking care of yourself. For so many reasons I am thankful to my community and to my clients who see me through the times when I’m not able to devote as much as usual to my professional projects. #ebbandflow
