Home Grown Music

As an undaunted woodworker I have made most of my musical instruments over the years.  I could never justify purchasing a high-end, high-quality instrument but I could make a reasonable proxy.  My interest has been rekindled in the last couple years, making my third banjo for myself and reviving one of the mountain dulcimers as my partner has decided to take an interest in it.

I find that there is never enough time to play an instrument properly with a regular day job, a relationship, and other interests.  It seems that it’s time for a change in the schedule to put music back into the center of life.

There are more posts to follow with some new stuff from the workshop.
