Thanks for stopping by my little workshop. Brush the sawdust off a stool and take a seat. Have a look around and I'm sure you'll find something to amuse yourself with. I offer handmade instruments made from primarily recycled and reclaimed parts: cigar boxes, biscuit tins, whiskey boxes, chair backs, barn wood and various bits and bobs. Quite a few are wired for amplification. Did I mention that I also assemble amplifiers? They are portable, about a half-watt, and run off batteries or wall adapters.

My stock is always changing and I will usually have guitars (one, two, three, or four strings typically), banjos, and ukuleles as well as some less expensive single-string "diddley-bows". Some instruments have full chromatic fretboards, some are diatonically fretted, some are fretless. Each is unique and bears the marks, scrapes and scars of its former life. 

I also make custom instruments. If you have a tin or box you feel needs a new voice, send it over to me! 

The best way to get one of these is to come to one of the many Design Shows and Craft Fairs around Southern Vancouver Island. Check the "Upcoming Shows" page for more information.  If you can't make it to me, I can also ship pretty much anywhere (not saying it will be cheap, but it should be possible).
