Product Details

"What tools do I need to build a kit?" Below, you can order the lutherie tools that kit builders find most useful. Select them all, or just the ones you need.

Router or Dremel? The Binding Router Bit and bearings listed are for use with a router (sold separately). If you rout your binding channels with a Dremel tool, consider our Precision Router Set.
