Gateway Area Luthiers Assembly & Show

We had the 2nd annual Gateway Area Luthiers Assembly and Show  this past weekend at Hibdon Hardwood in St.Louis Mo.  Approx 34 people attended wich was a step up from last year . Hibdon Hardwood and Lenox Band saw blades were our sponsors and did a wonderful job in making the attendees feel welcome .

We had 4 different demo's done by attendees . Thomas Rein did a demo on graduating a soundboard properly .  He was Followed by John Ressler on carving out a Guitar neck . That was followed by Mike Boggeman who did the same using a pin router . And certainly not the least was the  time we spent in the Saw room watching the sawmill make fast work of a Hard Maple log .

I have included a few photos of attendees . If you have interest in attending next year  we would love to have you .   Thanks for stopping by and hope you enjoyed your visit .
