LAPSTEEL

MODEL WORKSHOP

Design and realization of a wooden lapsteel.

This stringed instrument is my 4th project in lutherie. It is made of two different wood species : locust tree and mahogany. The wood pieces are all recycled from wood offcuts. The shape given to the instrument is inspired by the Telecaster® guitar and the Gretsch® lapsteel shapes.

Materials :
Solid mahogany and acacia wood.

Dimensions :
Length : 700 mm
Width : 350 mm
Thickness : 45 mm

Design and realization : Pascal Allègre
