Tour of Dave Lang's Guitar Making Shop - Kairos

Tour of Dave Lang's Shop

Dave Lang's Shop Tour was narrated by none-other-than Dave Lang on Monday night, January 12th, 2009.

Over 31 people (a sell-out crowd) enjoyed the presentation, as RCWA members were joined by members of the Northern Hills Woodworkers Guild from Spearfish, SD and members of the Hay Camp Wood Carvers of Rapid City, SD.

All in attendance were treated to a fine presentation of the intricacies of guitar making, including material selection and preparation, jigs required and how they are used, and all the detailed processes involved in making a superior product.
At the end of the tour, the group was treated to a surprise presentation of classical guitar music by Christopher Johnson and Pete Hendrickson, accomplished classical guitarists who had been invited by Dave to make his guitars come to life.

Overall, a very impressive field trip! Thanks Dave for your hospitality and for a fine presentation!
