Things are getting exciting in The Strum Factory! We are almost finished fretting. Two coats of sealer are on the fret boards and two coats of milk paint on the bodies and head stocks. Touch up and final once over tomorrow ,and Friday the fun begins…… finishing! Then stringing and set up. It is like magic when you spend so much time making something and then you get to play it. Can’t wait to hear it next week!!!

It has been a busy week at strum factory.com. We are making 25 dulcimer guitars. Today we milk painted bodies and are preparing for them for shellac. We love this instrument because it so easy to play,  even for the musically challenged. Each instrument of these instruments has a custom drawing inside that documents what is around me here in Florida.

Just got back from a long summer of teaching. I had a great time. Taught a wonderful stringed instrument class with Keun Ho Peter Park at Arrowmont. It was so great to have 2 weeks to teach guitar making.

I am home and have spent the week moving our latest series of instruments forward. It has been wonderful to be back in my shop working with my sister .
