Why do I build mandolins?
I have been in love with the mandolin for a long time now. I have owned several different mandolins from off the shelf entry level instruments to locally-built and nationally known custom ones and several import models in between. I never dreamed that one day I would make the leap into building my own line of custom mandolins that would bear my name.
Although I have only been building for a relatively short period of time, I feel that I have learned much about the construction of these instruments. Every mandolin is an opportunity for me to make the next one better.
I put a lot of myself into of my mandolins and it is hard to let go of them. Why do I build mandolins? I guess the real questions is 'why didn't I start sooner?'...
I don't keep regular shop hours, so email is the best way to contact me. The email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
