Idigbo Bowl

This bowl was turned from an Idigbo blank. I’d never heard of Idigbo (Terminalia ivorensis) which hails from west Africa and is commonly used in joinery due to its durability and stability, and limited moisture movement.

My First Turned Bowl (Tulipwood)

Described as “the greenish yellowish wood yielded from the Tulip tree found on the eastern side of North America and also in some parts of China”. (Reference Wikipedia).

Roasted Poplar guitars

I had a request to build a guitar for gigging that wouldn’t be as maintenance-free as possible. While guitars are reliable instruments, they do need a certain amount of upkeep and this is especially so on the road.

Ayous Strat

A budget-friendly Strat build with a solid African Ayous body and Eco Rosewood fretboard.

The Bat Strat

A guitar inspired by the music of Jim Steinman and the ‘Bat Out Of Hell’ musical.
