The luthier’s workshop, based in Brooklyn, New York, is spread across two floors, and includes a ‘salon’ where customers can test their instruments. From May 2015
I’ve been based in the same four-storey building for the past nine years. The first two floors are where my family lives and I have the top two for my work. This workshop is on the top floor, where there is also a room for roughing out instruments and a private room where I usually do any finishing work. These spaces see a lot of activity, as there are two other luthiers working here and musicians coming in, so I like to be able to balance that interaction with a place for solitary work when I need it. Downstairs is a room for clients, an office space where I also keep my wood, and a ventilated room for varnishing.
