Finely Strung is a diary about making and repairing stringed musical instruments – mainly classical guitars and violins – with occasional digressions into furniture, tools and other aspects of woodworking. Over the last 8 years, it has has accumulated well over a hundred entries. I hope that at least some of them will be of interest to people who make or play stringed instruments.

If you’re looking for something in particular, go to the bottom of this page to use the search box. Otherwise, try a random dip into the archive.

Photographs of recent work can be found by clicking on Gallery in the strap-line above.

The Music page contains a few short pieces played on some of the instruments.
