Over the weekend, a link to this video appeared in my inbox, and I thought it worth sharing. It’s an inside look at the C.F. Martin Guitar factory from 1939. It fills me with shop envy more than anything else, I spent a lot of years under awful fluorescent lights with no view other than concrete block walls. This looks like a perfectly pleasant space to me, lots of windows, hardwood floors and a group of highly skilled craftsmen making things about as well as they can be made.
Here are some supplies and tools we find essential in our everyday work around the shop. We may receive a commission from sales referred by our links; however, we have carefully selected these products for their usefulness and quality.
