The Four Hour Day Lutherie is a home for hands-on practice of the creative arts. We host musical performances, craft custom stringed instruments, and teach workshops in instrument building.
The premise of the Four Hour Day is real simple - we all are working too hard. We are giving up our one wild and precious life in to chase economic success, only to find that our large TVs and new vehicles really aren’t making us happy. We take our own busyness as evidence that we are being productive and useful, when too often we’re just tiring ourselves out enough to ignore those gnawing doubts.

Funky Frets is the host of the Funky Frets Uke Fest (duh!)
There are endless variations on wood, construction, adornment, etc. Each instrument produces a unique sound. While I ( Jonathan Dale ) am still learning (an endless process) to tune things to yield one sound or another, the “best” sound is in the ears of the player, and what that player is looking for. I try to make great sounding instruments, that are also beautiful objects, so that every time you open the case and take the instrument out you feel a certain joy and good fortune to be able to hold this musical object that then makes beautiful sounds when played.
