Woodworking Music Video 3

02-29-2012 10:22 PM by jjw5858 | 12 comments »

Hey everyone, not sure if this is of an interest or not but when I am not spending my pastime in the woodshop I also play guitar. I thought I would share a rough track from my home studio of a piece I have been working on the last few months on and off. The title of the actual instrumental is “Mr. Reed” dedicated to the amazing guitar guru Jerry Reed. I added some past projects along with my gilrfriend Jenn’s awesome wildlife photography. I like to call this little 2 m...

The Journey #1: After a long time

12-29-2008 05:42 AM by Craftsman on the lake | 7 comments »

I was 22 years old in 1976. I was in college to get a teaching degree and at the same time also attending the Maine school of Guitar making (luthiery). For the next few years I made guitars and sold them to college students. I finished about 20 of them. When I graduated from college I had to live out of state and after two years of that got married. Work and family took me away from the smell of brazilian rosewood and sitka spruce. Move ahead to 2008. I’m back in Maine at the old fam...

It was after that experience that he realized it would be easier &mdas...
