    Hello from East Texas

    Hello all! I am a luthier from East Texas. I started working with wood at a very young age, and began building istruments when I was 12. I am now 23 and love working with wood in any way, not just lutherie. I also build custom inlaid pistol grips. I hope to learn alot by being here, and hope I may be an asset as well.

    -Christian

    Welcome to WoW from someone that does not live in TX (I did years ago).

    Would love to see some of your 1911 grips.
    Life is not a journey to the grave with the
    intention of arriving safely in a pretty and
    well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside,
    thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming

    Holy $%&#!! What a Ride!
