Why a Story?

During quiet contemplative moments while creating his instruments, Weldon’s imagination has been known to go wild and imagine creatures using the instruments in various mischievous adventures.  These adventures flow from Weldon’s mind through his fingers as the images are burned and painted on the body of the lute, harp, banjo or other.
