Anyone who’s looked my profile may have seen a mention of how my long-term goal in woodworking is to learn how to be a luthier—to build guitars in particular. That’s quite a ways off in the future for me.
I actually have had an interest in stringed instruments for a long time. I don’t know how to play any of them, though I would like to someday.
My two oldest children and my youngest play musical instruments… a talent that certainly got from their mother, not me.
My particular interest in guitars nowadays comes from my oldest son. He’s actually very talented. Here is a link to one of his compositions that he’s currently entrering into a contest (If you have a few minutes, give it a view):
I say in all honesty that I’m proud of all of my children. They all will be wonderful contributors to our world [okay, so I’m biased… sue me :-) ]
But it’s this one that has me wanting to build guitars—maybe he’ll play one of mine one day.
(That being said…his older sister has me wanting to build violins.)
