Adopt a Musician
Covid-19 has devastated many musicians financially and emotionally. Concert halls and opera houses are closed, performances cancelled, and private music lessons suspended. Many musicians have been forced to put basic instrument maintenance and care aside. Make a pledge to pay for rehair and help out a local musician!
Tool Making for Bow Makers
We just completed a book about the unique and specialized tools that bow makers use. This is done in an attempt to break down one of the barriers of entry into bow making. Many specialized tools are not commercially available or are extremely cost prohibitive due to small batch productions. The ability to make one’s own tools is a necessary skill for any bow maker or restorer.
This book is full of detailed plans and procedures on how to make over two dozen different bow making tools and jigs. Each tool is presented in detail with high quality diagrams, dimensions, and procedures. This manual should prove to be a useful resource and great place to start for those bow makers new to tool making.
