October 2013 Workshop Completion

The workshop at 4 Tynedale Road, South Shields is now fully operational, complete with a shiny new bench built to cover all the demands of lutherie work. For those interested in such things the top is made of 3” thick steamed beech, laminated to prevent twist and finished with linseed oil, and it incorporates a standard carpenter’s vice (from Axminster) at one end, and a wagon vice built into the bench top at the other using a Veritas shoulder vice screw. Hopefully it should see both the birth and the rebirth of many fine instruments.
