    Been Cranking out a lot of Armrests lately. I found a lovely little piece of East Indian Rosewood in the scrap bin at the local Rockler. ... Never worked it before, but this piece is very nice.... The Rosewood Armrest is on the left of a piece of Sapele that came from the scrap bin of Marty Jacobson's shop that I am finishing up for someone her on the cafe.

    Went to your site, wow, I mean ...just WOW, you have some awesome instruments, both in beauty and sound(I listened to Whiskey before breakfast) Some people prefer the classic instruments and long time originals, no problem with that, but I prefer a custom build from a luthier such as yourself. If...and that's a big if, I get at least good enough to justify a classy instrument such as yours, I may be calling on you.
