Detroit Performs

Gary Zimnicki – Luthier

Video duration: 5:52

Reclaim Detroit is a nonprofit organization that dismantles vacant buildings to re-use their materials. That’s music to the ears of Michigan luthier Gary Zimnicki who is using reclaimed floorboards and ceiling supports to craft ukuleles and mandolins. Filmmaker Roy Feldman from WTVS Detroit Public Television takes us inside Zimnicki’s studio.
