Maplewood Center for Common Craft: Guitar Building Class

We recently finished the Guitar Building Class at Maplewood Center for Common Craft...  It is so rewarding to come to the last class when we finish putting on the hardware, string up the instruments and listen to them play.  I so enjoy seeing the smiles on the students faces as they strum their own handcrafted guitar for the first time!  Great job guys!  Here are some photos from the class….
