Blog #27: Paul Sellers/Justus Waldron

Blog #27:  Greetings from the Workshop!  I wanted to write about a couple visitors I have had in the shop as of recently.... I had the privilege of having master craftsman Paul Sellers from Wales come and spend some time with me in shop.  We were able to talk about our lives and making a living from our craft of working with wood.  I think we both have found a quality and simplicity in our lives both working with our craft and sharing it with others that we hold in common. I have learned from him several aspects of working with wood that have carried over into my instrument making. I counted it an honor to have spent time with him.  www.PaulSellers.com

    The other visitor I just had in shop was my friend and customer Justus Waldron.  He has just purchased a 2004 A-Model Macica Mandolin.  I love the simplicity of this mandolin that has a certain elegance to it.  It is nice to be able to see an instrument that I made a while back and still feel good about the workmanship and quality of it.  As always, we have a good time pickin!! He recently posted his new mandy on "Mandolin Cafe" under "post a picture"...feel free to check it out.
