    Refugee camp, 3 or 4 tools. Amazing stuff.

    I'm gonna stop looking for new tools to buy and just work on being a better builder. ;)

    I think the luthiers corner needs to organize a little donation for this awesome guy.

    If that is all the tools I had at my disposal, then each of my instruments would have looked like a Pinewood Derby project gone south! Amazing!

    Great video, amazing what almost nothing and lots of talent combined together can do.
