I build musical instruments. Each one is handmade and unique from every other one that I build. They're mostly based on cigar boxes and cookie tins, but occasionally they're based on mixing bowls, jewelry boxes, dog dishes, bicycle parts, pots and pans, or kitchen tables. I just look at the parts I have sitting around and let inspiration take me where it will.
I mostly build a lot of stringed instruments, though I have been known to build kalimbas (thumb pianos) and chimes. 4 string guitars and 5 string banjos are my favorite, though I do tend to build a lot of 3 string guitars as well. I'd like to build fiddles and hurdy gurdys but I don't actually know how to play either of those, so it would be difficult to determine if I'd built a good one. I will get around to it one of these days though. I'm always looking for a new challenge.
