Instrument Maker: Chris Vaisvil ( @vaisvil ) DIY Resourcefulness

Far too much has been written on Luthiers trying to recreate the work of Stradivarius. But what about the instruments along the way and the community of aspiring makers? Every maker has a unique path from novice to expert, but we should mention
spots along the whole journey.

Chris Vaisvil blogs about his instruments. Taking a design approach that mirrors Civil Engineering, these are instruments are built on raw functionality, minimal costa and completeness. He incorporates whatever is readily accessible to him, spend 20 bucks and make a finished product. Rough edges. Raw finish. Awesome.
