Building Acoustic Instruments

This is an ongoing project where I am building various acoustic instruments to explore the different ways that sound is produced through resonance in wood.

One of my points of historical focus is traditional violinmaking.  It is an interesting craft to study because so much of it is steeped in an almost religious reverence of the ‘old masters.’

So far, I have completed a Psaltery (from scratch), and am working on a Hurdy-Gurdy (from a kit) and still training to build a Violin (through traditional apprenticeship)
