I am a luthier specialising in ukuleles. My aim is to produce distinctively-styled instruments, providing an alternative to the standard “factory” designs. Through careful choice of materials, I am able to offer all the tone, playability and build quality of a professional player’s instrument in a wide variety of woods, both traditional and unconventional.
From time to time I try to squeeze an extra build in so that I have a uke or two for immediate sale in the workshop. I post details about them on social media and on my blog.
This was my starting point as a semi professional luthier – as a builder of biscuit tin banjos, ukuleles, mandolins and guitars. From 1996 to 2010 I built approximately 100 such instruments.
As I’ve gained in experience, I’ve progressed into building traditional wooden instruments to the point where I am one of only a tiny handful of full-time ukulele luthiers in the UK.
