I am a husband, father, musician, and educator who values exceptional artistry. My appreciation for music spans all genres, which means I take pride in creating the perfect instrument for your preferred musical styles.

I treasure creating unique, heirloom quality art pieces that not only sound great, but reflect the essence of the musicians playing them.   It’s important to me that each instrument comes with a story, and has special personal meaning that resonates with the player.

I especially love the meticulous process of discovering just the right tone of each instrument I work on.  It's as if each piece of wood knows what it wants to become, and I just need to listen to bring out its voice.


I come by my appreciation for craftsmanship and beautiful aesthetics honestly as I’m from a long line of wood workers.  My dad will still join me in the shop as we mentor my children, which means that your instrument might be hand-crafted by 3 generations of Sandhams!


It doesn’t matter whether you’re a hobbyist or a professional musician; I love collaborating with anyone who would value a one-of-a-kind, quality instrument made especially for them.  If that’s you, or someone you care about, I would enjoy talking with you and exploring the countless possibilities of creating your dream instrument.  Go here or click on the contact page to contact me directly.
