product called the String Habitat™, “for smaller instru- ments like mandolins, ukuleles, and violins,” Jennings says. “We’ve not built many of them yet, but it’s really nice, especially with stained glass on the top and sides. We use tempered glass, or on a small number of projects we use laminated glass. We always have to use one form of safety glass or another.
