Robin.fw” I have had the privilege of knowing Tom since he started the Art of Lutherie website (only virtually unfortunately). We collaborated – along with others – about the site and the possibility of on-line lessons and tutorials. Tom’s dedication to the art is beyond compare. I have followed his work as an artisan luthier as well as an on-line teacher and advisor ever since. His thoughtfulness towards building that first course was amazing and his attention to detail is admirable. So too is his willingness to share his hard-earned knowledge and that is no small gift.” – Robin Lawless – Canada

Kathy Testimonail.fw” I can’t thank you enough for your wonderful French polishing course!! This will be my third time attempting any French polishing on my instruments and I can very confidently say that your videos have explained it all in the clearest, most detailed, and most practical way!!! I just love how you have broken down your process into all the little steps, and how you keep stressing the fact that it’s more an intuitive process than a systematic, set-in-stone process; that makes a lot of sense to me, and is making it a very enjoyable process.” – Kathy Matsushita –
