What makes Josh interesting?

Josh is an art and woodworking professor here at Central Washington University. He creates musical instruments, specifically different types of guitars and stringed, plucked instruments. You can find his work online at or on Instagram @jbhguitars. You can also seem him playing with the Killdeer String Band here:

Aside from his online presence, the best place to find Josh is in his home shop building his guitars, teaching music, or on campus in the art building where he teaches the wood design section for the department of art and design.
