I absolutely LOVE the branding iron that The TinKir Workshop made for me! It works like a charm! I may have nearly burned the handle of it off in a camp fire but that’s neither here nor there...great work!"

I purchased sets of Telecaster and Jazzmaster templates from Kris and they have been amazing. They have been an indispensable tool for my projects. Not only are they spot on accurate, but the way they are laid out and with the router depths engraved into them they pretty much take the guesswork out of building a guitar body. I’ll also say that some of the cheaper templates out there are made of only 1/4” MDF, but Kris’s are thicker which give you more surface area for your router bit to ride on and cuts down on the risk of slippage/mistakes. Kris’s customer service and communication with customers is also top notch."
Kris at The TinKir Workshop made me a custom pedalboard case and I could not be happier!!! The detail that went into creating this case was impeccable. Everything was thought out, I was included in every step, my input was not overlooked and with Kris being a fellow guitar player, he understood what would work and what wouldn’t. He also watched over my gear like it was his own. If you need crazy to be possible, you have found the right guy! Thank you Kris, I am very happy with my custom pedal road case.
