Vesper Guitars - Guitar Luthier

Vesper Guitars are characterized by their striking appearance, beautiful tone, smooth playability, and unmatched signature sustain.  Neal Van Slett, owner and luthier of Vesper selects only the finest woods from around the world — woods that feature both aesthetic beauty and rich tone — to build his guitars.  Each Vesper Guitar is a truly unique work of art.

From the Artist

Neal VanSlett

What inspired you to get started in your craft?
Neal’s love for guitars began at a tender age. However, it was not until 1999 that he built his first guitar as a graduation present for his son.  Neal found that his God-given talents, and the unique experience and skills that he had previously gained from decades of work in precision-driven industries (i.e., tool making and woodworking) lent naturally to guitar building.  Neal found great joy and success in building his first guitar, and has continued building guitars ever since.

Duplainville Clocks: From the harvesting, sawing, and drying of my own lumber, to carving and assembling each clock by hand. Using only the best Keininger of Germany and Jobin of Switzerland have to offer to build the world’s most unique line of limited series clocks. It’s not only a passion, it’s what drives me.

From the Artist

Brendan Curran

What inspired you to get started in your craft?
Why did I get into my craft. I’ve always wanted to be considered an artist. I can’t paint, I can’t draw, I can’t write worth a darn, if you saw me attempt to act I might inspire people to revive the art of throwing rotten vegetables during a performance. What I can do is work with wood, what I do have a knack for is the play on color and scale. As I thought about it, I thought that cool cutting boards would be fun. I hadn’t seen them around when I started 10 years ago. I’m sure they were around, I didn’t invent the idea. But I thought wow, functional art. Now wall hanging art is cool, sculpture is cool, but how about something that is art, that you get to be interactive with? So I tried it. We starting playing with different woods from around the world with natural color or interesting grain patterns. And the rest is history….

What is one of your ‘go-to’ tools that you use?
My go to tool is the Powermatic 1792002k table saw. Is there any answer other than table saw possible?? Yeah, I suppose for a woodturner there might be.
A close second goes to my Dewalt dw735 planer.

What is one tool (from Neu’s) that you would like to add to your collection in the near future?
Powermatic 15″ planer is next up on my list

Wilhelm’s Workshop - Master Craftsman

From the Artist

Bob Wilhelm

Master Craftsman Bob Wilhelm is not only an expert in the field of woodworking, but also in sharing his knowledge with others. In the past several years, Mr. Wilhelm has conducted a series of classes “Wilhelm’s Workshop” here at Neu’s. Along with displaying some of his own masterpieces, Wilhelm will be demonstrating (lathe turning, and router tips).

The Wisconsin Woodworkers Guild

The Wisconsin Woodworkers Guild is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to provide good fellowship, service to the community, and the exchange of knowledge and education through seminars, demonstrations, lectures, and hands-on workshops.

From the Artist

Ronald Reuter (President of the “Wisconsin Woodworkers’ Guild”)

What inspired you to get started in your craft?
There has always been something about woodworking that has interested me. To take something from a tree and turn it into a piece of furniture or an item I want to give as a gift, just excites me.

What is one of your ‘go-to’ tools that you use?
The basic tool you really need in your shop has to be a “table saw”. It just seems to be the starting tool in most shops. I bought a “Delta- Great White” from Neu’s many years ago.

What is one tool (from Neu’s) that you would like to add to your collection in the near future?
This is a hard question to answer. There are too many tools to choose from. I would probably say, a vacuum system would be high on the list.

John Lietzau - Bowls, Pens, Breadboards

From the Artist

John Lietzau

What inspired you to get started in your craft?
Having long been interested in folk art crafts my interest turned to segmented and green bowl turning in 2011. Having seen other artists segmented bowls sparked my interest in learning the craft. Since then I have been featured in local craft and art shows with my bowls, pens, and breadboards. While enjoying the Neu’s Woodworking Show stop on in and check out my booth.

What is one of your ‘go-to’ tools that you use?
To make segmented bowls I utilize a lathe, a variety of saws (including a newly purchase chain saw from Neu’s), sanders, and a variety of hand tools.

What is one tool (from Neu’s) that you would like to add to your collection in the near future?
I would love to own the newest model free standing air compressor.
