Building guitars is not necessarily about  fine woodworking or construction techniques and plans.  The woodworking aspect is a means to an end.  The point is to build a meaningful, superbly functional, and aesthetically pleasing object.  It's creating an object to make music and ultimately inspire you.  

I am a musician first and luthier second, which greatly affects my approach to building.  Foremost in my mind is the sound I want the instrument to achieve.  All other facets,  though important, are secondary.  I take great pride in the fit and finish of every instrument I make, but if the sound is lacking... what's the point.
