More About the Author
David Finck was born in Pittsburgh, PA in 1961. His father's efforts at instrument making piqued David's interest, and so, he built his first guitar while still in college. This turned out to be a transforming experience, sparking a passion for wood and craftsmanship. Subsequently, after graduating from Berkeley, that ember truly caught fire with two years of instruction under reknowned craftsman, author, and teacher, James Krenov. Since 1986, David has been designing and building guitars, fine furniture, and lighting fixtures. Since 2013 he has been devoting his time solely to violin making. David maintains a commitment for passing along his woodworking knowledge through teaching and writing, and lately, videography.
