Happening Now

What's going on in my shop and news

As I'd stated earlier, I'm retired now, but still tinkering. I'd planned on closing down the website, but circumstances have conspired against that blessed event (for me), so I'll be tinkering with that as well.

Again, thanks to everyone who has made it possible for me to spend a large portion of my adult life doing a job I love.

The banjo is coming along, slowly, and I've strung it up sans-resonator because I can't wait to hear how it sounds. So far, I'm delighted.

The weather has warmed a bit, so I'm making the trek to the shop on occasion, tinkering away at the banjo's resonator.


This experimental bluegrass banjo will hopefully be lightweight and supremely playable, yet still have great bluegrass chops. An integral tone ring and flange make it unique, and I'll be trying some new ideas along the way.


Thanks again! It's been fun!
