Just over a year ago I did an internet search for information about bracing patterns for 000 style acoustic guitars. Somehow I landed half a world away on Kieran Binnie’s blog Over the Wireless. At that moment I never would have imagined that Kieran would one day become a colleague and good friend, but I’m happy he has.
I’m also happy to say that because of that mutual work and friendship I had the honor of being interviewed this week for his ongoing “Getting to Know…” series. You can read that interview here, but on a grander scale, you should just go ahead and add Over the Wireless to your list of regular reads. Kieran’s work introduced me to hand tool lutherie, Chris Schwarz, and all sorts of techniques, tool chests and aesthetic anarchy. It’s a wonderful, insightful, well written blog and worth your time in every respect.
