For over 30 years, I have been handcrafting a variety of stringed instruments, including lap dulcimers, hammered dulcimers, mandolins and guitars. For about 15 years I operated a retail store near the Blue Ridge Parkway where I got to 
know people who stopped in from all around the world. Now I work out of my workshop at my home and do more traveling, performing and teaching. I hope the pages here will demonstrate what I do, and I am always glad to answer questions by email or phone.
