Default Rick Toone - Not just a guitar man!

Simply put, I've followed this guys blog for a LONG time now, and frankly, his work astounds me. I have NEVER seen anyone work wood so precisely nor come up with so many concepts that make normal luthiers look traditionalist, regardless of what they're making.

Who else knows about this guy, and more importantly, do any of the luthiers and vendors here know of his work, especially since a HUGE amount of it is free to use, due to his dedication to 'open source' luthiery, and his participations in What's Next with Building Guitars and Stringed Instruments

Edit: His website: Instruments - RICK TOONE | LUTHIER

I particularly like the fact one of his current projects is a floyd rose equipped, MIDI capable semi-hollow body, and that he takes everything to illogical extremes. One of his most recent blogs about shielding has him not just making a cavity and shielding it, it has him routing a chamber within which he places a fully grounded enclosure for the control made of solid copper.
