“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......”

Kerfing Clamps

CLKC

 

Joel Nowland of Nowland guitars designed these deceptively simple clamps. They are perfect for quickly and easily clamping the kerfing to the sides. Each clamp provides the perfect amount of pressure to the kerfing. These clamps are designed to offer two points of nearly equal pressure onto the kerfing (the typical "clothes pin clamps" provide only one point of pressure, causing the pressure on the kerfing to be lopsided) and work well with any of our kerfing, including the hard to clamp triangular kerfing (see photo). Sold in a bag of 10. Typically you need one clamp for every inch of kerfing.
