Thank you for the kind words about my work, Joe. My first instrument was made by resawing a hunk of walnut in the traditional way. But I've been experimenting with different woods. Lately I've been working with a builder who harvests his own trees and resaws the wood from logs, and he's teaching me what he does. Now I'm leaning towards using only locally grown wood too. It is a great learning experience for me.
