Professional woodworker since 1981. In 2003 I created the Barker Bass and am continuing to build, market and sell this instrument. Interstitially I do other woodworking including, but not limited to, furniture as well as sculpture (which often includes repurposed and reclaimed metal parts).

Thanks for your help, Lee. I hope it’s okay if I come back to you later with some other questions. ;o)
