Denny Brown, one of my teaching assistants has done extensive research on this subject and in this four part blog offers some great advice. I hope you enjoy it! The other three parts will be released over the next few weeks so subscribe to the blog or check back often.

Efficient Guitar Building, Part 1: Before You Start
One of the many surprises for new guitar building students is how long it REALLY takes to build a guitar. That prompts the question, "How can I learn to save time and decrease my building time?" I posed this question to two groups: The Robert O'Brien Guitar Building Forum and the LinkedIn Luthier Built Group. Some answers are obvious, others came from years of experience. A few responses took me by surprise.
From the feedback, I divided the recommendations into four categories that I'll discuss in a series of posts:
1. Before You Start
2. While You Work
