Rask Guitars

About Me

Hi,

I’m Robert Rask, and I have always had a passion for woodworking and the creative process. From 6th grade woodshop, to building some of the best skateboard ramps known (in our neighborhood), to an obsessive furniture making hobby, to owning a woodturning business for 5 years; woodworking is  literally in my blood. I’m a third generation woodworker, and now passing it on to a fourth. After buying my first guitar in 2006, I started to learn to play. What immediately followed was a curiosity about how these instruments were built. I started talking to luthiers. I read books. I studied for 2 years before I built up the confidence to say, ā€œI can do this!!ā€ The first build took years, but was one of the most rewarding and transformative experiences of my life. I see it as a co-creation. I get to take some of the most beautiful materials that have already been created, and create something new with them. The best part is that I can then hand that creation off to someone that can take it and create something incredibly powerful with it, The Power of Music!
