Luthiers as Entertainment 1

If I’m bored and want to chill out sit back and not do anything much, I’ve taken to watching people make things on youtube. There’s something particularly rewarding about watching a skilled craftsman making something amazing out of raw materials.

I came across this video “Full Building of a Custom Goodall Guitar”

The Goodall guitar is built using a combination of skilled craftsmanship, traditional materials, and judicious use of high tech machinery.

In contrast “Documental de la construcción artesanal de las guitarras Francisco Bros.” shows the construction of a traditional hand built flamenco guitar. Very little modern tooling here, just traditional tools and techniques. Particularly impressive is the use of string rather than dozens of clamps to hold the glued components of the guitar.
