William Hopper, Luthier


Welcome to MOUNTAIN VENTURES . After many years in design and construction business I am forming a venture showcasing my many skills . Now after 50 years experience as a craftsman in many mediums. You may be confident that I will give you a quality job in any of the many products that I offer . With an education in mechanical engineering technologies as a beginning, my wife and I ran a successful sign and design business for 45 years. Spending much time and energy developing knowledge and skills in custom production of high quality products. With skills in hand carving, design, welding while working with materials such as woods, aluminum, glass, plastics of all kinds. Also I have used many types of glues and finish coatings that has given me the ability to know how to approach any design problem with the skills to produce a high quality product. Many years in the study of design and engineering problems is also a great asset to  help know how to complete many different projects. As you will see on these pages I have been busy in many fields. Since selling my sign business and retiring I am now free to pursue my skills and art , musical instruments, kayaking, travel, and quality signs by hand only. No mass production only one of a kind creations with  skills and knowledge from years of experience. Once again welcome to Mountain Ventures and thanks for your time and interest. William
