Reimagined with recycled wood: Christopher Bonham's guitars

Comments Comments


Goulburn local luthier Christopher Bonham will launch his first collection of one-of-a-kind guitars this Easter long weekend at the National Folk Festival Canberra.


Visitors to the festival and the Christopher’s stand will see a unique collection that pays homage to the dwindling arts of woodworking, French polishing, and the repurposing of century-old timber from pianos and buildings – all harmoniously embodied within a genuinely unique electric guitar. “I can’t wait to showcase my work – it has been ten years in the making”, said Christopher.


Christopher Bonham is a seasoned maker in the realm of woodworking whose artistic journey began at Sturt School for Wood in 1996. ‘A dedicated creator’, Chris ventured further into his art by mastering the craft of French polishing. Today, he stands as an emerging artist, breathing life into unique timber instruments that resonate with the echoes of the past.
