This website was created with the purpose of sharing the passion of lutherie. I will try to show you in detail through pictures and descriptions the construction phases of my instruments. Also you can find technical documents about the wood, tutorials, drawings, designs and much more. The website will appeal to all lovers of lutherie and acoustic guitars and ukulele lovers.
My time is mainly spent in the construction of ukuleles. Making of a craft instrument, my purpose is to give back the right importance to this instrument, which people most of time cosidered it a toy, also seen the massive way in which it's manufactured and marketed.

Each piece is minutely hand made, with very fine woods from all parts of the world. My aim will be to build natural-sounding instruments, with balanced and expressive tone, by combining elegance and comfort.
