Bob Alexander
Share:
Bob has spent over two decades of his life as a carpenter and has always enjoyed woodworking and furniture making. Around 1992 he took on the additional interest of blacksmithing - first as a hobby, then a career when he opened a shop in 1995 offering clients work from colonial to contemporary. Bob has studied with Clay Spencer, Doug Hendrickson, Jerry Darnell, Tom Clark, Uri Hofi, Joe Miller, and other renowned smiths. In 2003, he first heard a resonator guitar and fell in love with the sound, which led to his learning to play and construct them.
