Workshop Work

My products.

Miguel Mateo offers you the possibility of acquiring new and old products, all of them reviewed and approved for daily use. The woods that I acquire for the instruments in my workshop are personally selected and duly seasoned. The glues that I use are of animal origin of excellent quality and purity from different parts such as skin, bone and tendons. It depends on the work that I am going to do, I choose the most convenient one. I also use aliphatic glue for certain construction assemblies, no less suitable than hot glues and with acceptable sound qualities.

For the finishes of my instruments, I seal the pores of the wood to prevent it from absorbing environmental humidity and highlight the beauty of the grain of each species of wood. I use organic varnishes such as shellac, mixed with essence and/or linseed oil cooked with natural resins dissolved in alcohol or turpentine essence.
