“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......”

Glue-Clearing Chisel

CHISELSGlueClearingCHG400

 

This chisel, designed by Richard Schneider, can be used to remove glue squeeze-out from the sides of bracing. This precisely curved blade, measuring 1/2" x 6 3/4" long, has a specially ground beveled tip which simplifies this otherwise difficult and time consuming task. The chisel can also be used for carving or scalloping braces. It has a high quality blade made by Ron Hock, and a Maple handle.

Bernd Kraus wrote this about our chisel: "One of the first tools I bought from you was the glue-clearing chisel... today it is still the most used tool in my shop. And not just for cleaning glue. It is the only tool that doesn’t get put away when cleaning up my workbench. It is always out and I use it often. The tool holds an edge a long time and usually only needs a little honing to keep it super sharp...what a pleasure to use. I can’t imagine any woodworking shop not having one."
