My Philosophy of Repair

My philosophy of repair can be simplified into one straight forward statement:

Luthiers make and repair musical instruments not furniture

An approach to repair must of course consider the physical durability of the materials and of the technique used, but must also consider the acoustical effects of the repairs.

This may seem obvious, but some common repair techniques that are structurally sound, may also be unnecessarily detrimental the resonance of the instrument.
