His name is Tomy Hovington and he builds string instruments. He started his woodworking journey years ago, following in the footsteps of his father and grandfather. After many that gave him an opportunity to hone his woodworking skills, he decided to branch into lutherie and made his first musical instrument -- an F5 mandolin. We came across a video series that he put on YouTube, making a Ukulele out of pine, it's great example of how instructional video's should be made. No rush, taking time to explain...
No, the 3 video's are not the average "5 minute" scream out's for attention. You just have to take a short hour to watch this carefully filmed, highly informative and instructional video's. On his website you'll find much more information!
