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! 

This year I am in only one craft show: The Owl Designer Fair.  December 5th & 6th at the  Fernwood NRG. (See the "Shows & Events" link in the top menu.  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).
