3) The Qualities of Craftsmanship

the qualities of craftsmanship

I have just completed these 99 pages of rumination from behind the bandsaw.
This book started as a guide to help my students and grew into a philosophical
craftsmanship guide for improving your work.

"I have read it 3 times and each time I get something else out of it. Now I am quoting it...
Just fantastic. It is even a little funny. Thanks for taking the time to show us the inner
workings (your mind) of your guitar building. Loved it, loved it, loved it!"

Yep - it's a deal!

I just finished reading your book during my lunch break. Quite the philosopher you are.
Even an old walrus like me got a lot out of it, and I am going to make sure my son reads it too.

I appreciate your work and effort to better the community for those of us who are constantly looking for the next thing to read
and study. Loved and couldn't put it down. I can't imagine how difficult it was for you guys in the early days before the
information explosion era that we are now enjoying.
So thanks!

I was there at your speach and wanted to get this copy for a review.
Man , I am glad I did. Thanks so much.

Hey Carlos, I read your book "How To Make A Living Doing Something Crazy" this evening. I wanted to say thank you for making this information public. I find myself in the battle between reality and desire some days. You said so many things that I have felt, but did not know how to put them in words. You have been a great influence in my guitar building ...... I want to express my appreciation.
Thanks for being a mentor.
