Great Plains Handmade

My name is Barry Rust. I'm a woodworker and teacher. I grew up in central Illinois, around all sorts of tools and a family that could make pretty much anything. My first cigar box ukulele was built in my dad's workshop, from an old Corina cigar box that held his old toy train parts. Come swing by my Brooklyn, NY workshop sometime.
