joetill's Shop Announcement

Thank you for visiting my new Etsy store. I'm so thrilled to have found this way to reach people with an interest in handmade items.
After years of playing guitar and working with wood, my two passions collided in 1996 when I built my first guitar. I've been dedicated to the craft ever since. You can learn all about them at
Each guitar I build starts with a 'Eureka!' moment that comes when I find incredibly beautiful and interesting pieces of wood. These moments can occur in lumberyards, thrift stores or garage sales. In fact, some of my finest guitars were made from recycled and re-purposed furniture. One medium-sized redwood burl coffee table can yield up to a dozen guitars.
In addition to my actual guitars, I'll be offering my handmade guitar related items here on Etsy, too. Guitar shaped light switch plates, wooden guitar stands, display cases...
Etsy has inspired me to expand my creative horizons and I look forward to presenting my ideas to you here.
