Reflecting

So it has been a week since Maplewoodstock where I exhibited my guitars. I have been reflecting on the day and thinking about how fast it went and how little time I actually had to speak with all the attendees that stopped by. Also thinking about how I can make it even better next year.

A little guitar talk, good for the soul

I am considering plans to hold an indoor event in the fall to display the instruments in an environment where you can hear them with some pickers and players there. Perhaps to do a mixer of guitars, musicians, photography and art in a small show, and all this in the midst of working on some instrument building and clients architectural photography assignments.  All too much for one brain and aging body.

A glimpse into my workshop and studio

This week I made my workspace a bit more friendly by consolidating my tools into one room. Much better than having to go from room to room but as much as I try to neaten it up it’s alot for a small space, yet I need everything close at hand to do what I do.

A few of my hand-built guitars

I assembled some of my JR Guitars together to play and listen to them just for inspiration for the next builds.

Soon I will be adding a separate page that will highlight my favorite tools.
Stay tuned, thanks
