I am a mapmaker and a guitar/bass/mandolin player living south of Austin, Texas. I am also a hobbyist woodworker and wannabe luthier. I have brought several instruments back from the dead with neck repairs and built two ukuleles from scratch. I completed my first solid body electric last year and have ideas for many more. For this contest, my plan is to build a guitar body from many small blocks rather than cut it out from a larger piece of wood. I am still working on the details of the plan but I am excited to get started!
