I should be on this list. I built my first guitar in 1973, and have been building since, but never as my livelihood. I spent 20 years as a cabinet maker and then 20 years teaching high school wood shop. Now that I'm retired I spend a lot more time building guitars. I sell, which helps me buy materials and supplies, pay for the hydro and heating, air conditioning in the shop (garage).
Happy to exchange with the rest of you in the pursuit of this art.

Please add me to the list. My user should be ok - certainly qualify , never sold a thing ( open to offers of course ! )
Just about to fret the 3rd guitar - learning to play on the first one I made - a rough copy of the Torres La Suprema.
Have mainly made violins to date - used to play trad Irish fiddle. Now more interested in early classical.

Just up to Delcamp book 1 - p 27 Cano Curriella piece, which is a fine piece of music. Also dipping into Pascual Roth - I like his fingering exercises.

See my signature for my violin making website - not too up to date now but has links to my Flickr albums which have all my current instruments - and the three current guitars.

The 4th guitar is just a rosette at the present time - still thinking

Hi, I used to be a member here and be on this list as Peter_C. Work's been busy so I haven't logged in for quite some time.

Looks like my account is gone (?), so I'm now here as Peter_T.

I live in Eugene, OR and have been trying to learn to build classical guitars, slowly but surely, as a hobby in my "spare time." Happy to post some pics of my current batch to the forum, and hope for some great discussions here.

My name now has "amateur luthier" under it, which is correct, but my name is purple. Is that right?

Purple is the group color for luthiers, amateur or profesessional.

Just found this list. This is where I should be. But my user name does not contain my first name. How do I change it to me my real name? I looked into editing my profile but I don't see a way.

Thanks! Michael McBride
