Guitar Maker’s Shop, circa 1900

Luthier Leo Uhlmeyer had a guitar shop in Watertown, Wisconsin circa 1900.


"Guitars beyond compare. The secret of my own will improve any guitar. L.H. Uhlmeyer"


Nice shavings.


Mr. Uhlmeyer apparently did not stay seated for the entire extended exposure.


I like to think that each of these tools did indeed do something specific.


It is awesome to think that these large rip saws created pieces for fine musical instruments.


Satisfaction or money refunded.
