Master luthiers Rauno Nieminen and Juha Ruokangas will talk about a project they’ve been involved in the past three years: An ambitious attempt to collect all the available data about thermally aged tonewood, and share it freely to the community of European luthiers. They also set a goal to build a thermal ageing oven on a budget – specifically designed for the needs of the individual luthier. Come to see the lecture and find out if they succeeded!
Juha has not only been a luthier for many years but is also one of the founders and board members of the EGB.
In addition to being a luthier Rauno is also a teacher in Finland, educating young aspiring luthiers, as well as an honorary member of the EGB.
