Thanks, Paul. If you've heard any of their stuff off the new album (Hard Love), there's a chance you've heard one of my guitars. Bo plays this one on tour and in the studio.

It's made from chestnut reclaimed from an old barn in North Carolina.

Thank you, Keith. Nah, I'm sure your lathe work just blows mine out of the water.

Beautiful stuff. Scratching my head why you would want to make pens. Thanks for sharing.

You certainly hit a home run and it looks like it was a Grand Slam too!

Beautiful work!

I once showed my wood working to a very humble person (who liked woodworking) - that I met in my neighborhood when I lived in Japan. Then, a few months later I found out he was a artist and his favorite medium was wood. Was I ever embarrassed! He would come to the US and teach Japanese woodworking techniques. He and Sam Maloof met on a few occasions and conversed through an interpreter. That is far far above my thought processes and skill sets!

Your work reminds me of his!

Thank you. There's definitely an artistry in pens that I can't get in guitars. They're really a completely different set of skills.

Thank you very much. Though I struggle to see anything in my work that would merit such a comparison, I really appreciate the kind words.

Wow! I have played guitar for a while and attended college on a baseball scholarship. Had I not bought a Gibson LP standard, I would have been interested in the first one. Outstanding! Wait...just noticed it went for 45K (and worth it). The LP was more in my budget :-).

That middle guitar sold for $31k at their charity event last year, and the bottom guitar sold for $8k at the auction this year. All that money went to the charity. I try to do a lot for charities and have built others for different charities as well.
Your generosity is as astounding as your talent!

Just looked at your website - love the weathered look of the Barncaster guitar! You do beautiful work!

Need to breathe is great and so are your guitars. I play a bit and I'm itching to make an electric and an acoustic. I made a cigar box guitar last year and that was fun.
