In this section , you will find some of my personal reflections on the subject of lutherie. These are meant to be just that -- my own personal thoughts and they reflect only one possible approach to the subject. They are not meant to provide any authoritative or definitive statements on the topics addressed, but are included merely to share a sense of how I view my work.
