Bob Robinson Makes a Classical Guitar

Hey wow, a new blog post! I stumbled on this amazing video about a month ago, of my friend Bob Robinson. I worked for Bob for only about a year and a half, right after grad school, in his custom furniture shop in Chicago. It was from Bob that I learnt most of what I know about woodworking. I left when Bob decided to pursue a longtime dream of becoming a veterinarian. Fortunately for the world, he quickly changed his plan and returned to another longtime dream of making classical guitars. I suggest watching this video in its entirety, because it's really cool.

Bob and his wife Deirdre have been running a high-end furniture business called Troscan Design for many years now, and he makes the beautiful guitars on the side.
