The purpose of an armrest is to make playing more comfortable, and also to allow to the top of the instrument to vibrate more freely.  Scroll down for photos of my past work.

To purchase an armrest, go to my 'Shop' page.  There you will find a detailed order form.

My current inventory can be found on Etsy at: www.etsy.com/shop/leoswood
