Testimonials

"I’m about 10 tops into a stack of 40 cedar tops I got from you, and whenever I want to start a new guitar, I just walk over and pick a top off the stack, and start building.
They are all that great! I don’t have to dink around with the pattern, or select the “best" one: I just start building. I love that!  I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate your high standards, and what a pleasure it is to do business with you!"

The Art of Inlay, Larry Robinson

SKU: BM20

 

by Larry Robinson
 
Internationally-known inlay artist Larry Robinson has written a beautifully illustrated book with over 100 color photos of amazingly intricate inlays, not only of Larry's exquisite work, but that of Steve Klein, Grit Laskin, Ren Ferguson, Richard Hoover, and several other fine inlay artists/guitar makers. There are many more photos, as well, in black and white. Larry covers everything one needs to know about inlay techniques and inspires anyone who opens the book to pick up a jeweler's saw and "V" block. Hints like "roll the handle by moving your fingers back and forth...the resulting cut will be smoother than if you turn your whole hand from the wrist," are common throughout the book. Larry's easy-going writing style makes this a very pleasant read. Revised/Expanded version, 128 pages, softbound.
