During the summer of 2023, I built a black walnut Huron for George in Romania and a Michigan for Eric here in SE Michigan. I hoped to build an octave mandolin, but I didn't have time this summer. That will have to wait for another year. Even though the guitars are built, I will keep the build blogs on my site until I start new builds next season. You can scroll down to read the blogs and post comments. I'd love to hear from you.

Clicking on an image will open up a detailed blog of that guitar build with a link to photos taken at various stages of the build
