My passions have finally collided thanks in large part to Ben. I am a woodworker by trade and a musician for my sanity. I finally got up the courage to start building guitars in 2019. I am hoping that my creative endeavours with instruments can spawn a fresh level of creativity in all my woodworking. This particular build started on Christmas day 2020 as I took the afternoon to design my entry into Ben's Christmas Giveaway. I am planning to primarily use woods native to Vancouver Island Canada. It will be fascinating to see all the ideas that are presented this year. I am looking forward to it.
