Commercial Services

In addition to providing free information, plans, and calculators on this website, I provide a number of commercial services related to lutherie on a contract/consulting basis. These include software engineering (construction of web-based or private calculators and other lutherie software tools); technical writing, editing, and proofreading; CAD/CAM/CNC related software and documentation; instrument design work; and design of custom string sets for unique instruments and tunings. I also do a limited amount of repair and restoration work.

Please contact me to discuss your project.
