From Ted Crocker
What instruments are you building or playing?

Hi Bear, welcome to the Clubhouse!  Good to see you here, be careful, you can get lost for months...

The focus here is on all types of handmade instruments and music. There are lots of helpful builders and players here and lots of Groups to teach and learn. We welcome participation so don't be shy.
