All the instruments featured on this site incorporate, to varying degrees, recycled and found materials— pots and pans, broken guitars, old furniture, scraps of wood from the street, et cetera. The tools used to give form to these instruments include little more than saws, knives, chisels, and a drill. I started doing this in late 2001 and finished my twenty-first instrument in late 2011.
