I count it a great joy to be able to teach the luthier craft to these students….  I recently visited with one of my former students from a previous Arch top Guitar Building Class.  His name is Dave Cox, and he stopped by the shop to show me his finished Arch Top Guitar.  Great job Dave! Here are some photos….

Dave also has a hidden talent for riding a unicycle and brought it along to show my youngest son some of his unicycle skills….Thanks Dave!
