Luthier Workshop Liquidation

Hello All! Recently a friend of mine contacted me about beginning to liquidate the workshop of her late husband, who was a luthier. There are tool chests filled with gouges, chisels, saws, clamps of all types, templates for various violas and violins, as well as other odds and ends. Over the last month or two we began to chip away at the room nearly filled with supplies and tools, we have identified as many tools, parts, pieces, and woods as we can for the time being and have compiled an eBay store. There are plenty of quality tools, some homemade tools, and other tools with modifications that made his job easier. In addition to these items, there are some larger items that require local pickup in the NoVA, such as a 10" Craftsman Bandsaw, and a Gemini Carving Duplicator. That being said there is a voluminous wood collection, upwards of 100 sets, that, over the next year will be slowly be liquidated. There are other instrument accessories listed as well such as several cases and gig bags. It is my understanding that at some point soon the collection of cello wood will also be liquidated.

While I wish the circumstances were better, I come to you with these listings. Please take a look and see if anything catches your eye. All proceeds will go towards his wife and two daughters. Thank you again for looking, even if you find you don’t need anything!
