Topic tags/keywords: luthier guitar video

The craftsmanship and uncompromising dedication to perfection is impressive. The video is 60 minutes long and professionally shot and I found it entertaining and inspiring from start to end.

I loved seeing the bench-top Ryobi bandsaw about 10 minutes into this video. We (myself included) get so hung up sometimes on forums about equipment manufactures, and quality/grade of our purchases. Seeing what many people would say is an inferior grade piece of equipment in this guys shop is refreshing. It really is whatever works for you.

Not many videos about woodworking teach me new things, just because I’ve watched so many and have read many books by accomplished woodworkers; but I learned a few things from this one.

Thanks, Rick.

Fabulous video!!! If nothing else, I was reminded of the value of patience.

My favorite line was something like …
“And now I’ll let it sit for a few weeks until it understands that it’s a guitar and no longer a tree.”

I checked out his website. For some reason I still compare prices to what my parents paid for their first house.
One of his guitars = my parents first house.

This was amazing to watch. It is almost an understatement to call his work “art”

Love the tools this man has. Most of them are top of the line. I do have a ryobi bandsaw … :) Besides the wood working technique, it is pretty much standard procedures for luthiers especially when you are as successful as he is. My fifth classical guitar is getting better than previous ones. With 10 more years, and tons of patience I hope I would be somewhere close to his success… Making guitar is addictive… :)

The soundbite that got me was “Just a few bits of wood and some glue and now it’s making music.”

That was an amazing look into what it takes to make good music.

Thanks for posting the video.
