Luthier Services

Steve Zonce has been building custom instruments since 1990. He provides luthier services from complete built custom instruments to instrument repair.


Steve made me a gorgeous round dining table with two leaves so it can sit from 6 to 10, and he matched my unusual grayish distressed oak floors perfectly!  Then he made me a half round table to put below our wall mounted TV because our little dog jumps up at the TV whenever any animal comes on.  This table is just the right amount of buffer between his little claws and the fragile screen.  It is also a beautiful grayish stain, matching the floors and dining table.  We were batting 1000 so far, so I asked him to take a cute little old oak round pedestal table I bought at a consignment store for $75 and strip it and restain it to go with the other two tables.  Voila!  It looks brand new, and my living/dining rooms look so good; like these pieces have always been there!  Steve is a pure pleasure to work with; anxious to please, a perfectionist but not slow, and willing to consider the client's preferences but also offer his own expertise.  I highly recommend him if you want any unique furniture that will be a treasure for many years. 


Very nice shop, very personable guy, thanks for helping me out in a bind when you could have easily turned me down since it was after 5pm. 


Steve did a great job on a tricky job that I had for him. He completed the work earlier than scheduled and really went above and beyond on the quality. I also got to see some other projects he was working on and the all looked top notch. I definitely recommend using him for your next project.
