“Dear Sir,
A few months ago I placed my first order with you and built my very first guitar. Ovangkol back and sides with Sitka top.
I have been a craftsman for a number of years, rebuilding antique pianos, including making new soundboards and bridges, and decided to try my hand at guitars after buying a Taylor 814ce.
The results of my first attempt were surprising, to me and to others. Since I'm a bit "old-school" I built it entirely by hand, no table saw, router, joiner etc. (I did use a drill press!). I have already received requests for custom made guitars, and from a store interested in selling them.
It really helped to find quality supplies, all in one place, so I could start this experiment - which may just turn out to be my next and final career.
Many Thanks.
ps. I have just placed a second order so I can start making a few more......”

The Jewelry Engravers Manual

SKU: BM40

 

by R. Allen Hardy and John J. Bowman
 
This is one of the few books available that is not just a collection of fonts and styles but is a real how-to manual for engraving. Although it talks about working on metals, all of the information is applicable to mother-of-pearl and other shell materials. From making and sharpening tools to the illustrating the finest cuts, this book covers it all. Engraving is a great way to really make an inlay or instrument stand out. 139 pages black and white.
