Jigs & Gadgets

The making of musical instruments such as an ukulele or guitar is a very personal type of effort and amenable to a great deal of individual expression. There is no single way to do something correctly. Jigs and gadgets help the musical instrument builder to do a repetitive operation in an efficient manner. The examples below celebrate the ingenuity of several luthiers as well as some modest attempts on my part to help others ease the path of construction.


If you enjoy the technical side of things, please consider buying my book "Left-brain Lutherie" . Although no longer sold by StewMac, you can buy from LMII, MIMF or directly from me.
