Springbrook’s Luke Mercier makes violins, banjos and more

SPRINGBROOK – Steeped in history and sprinkled with wood shavings, Luke Mercier’s workshop is where string players find their voices.
In a sunlit basement room, Mercier stands over his latest project, making changes that could result in beauty or disaster.
Today he’s working on a commissioned double bass. Its Englemann spruce top and Carolina poplar back are single pieces of wood nearly as wide as Mercier’s shoulders.
