There's no stopping now. So you might as well put necks on 'em and string 'em up or you're probably going to die in a box avalanche.  : )

I did the same thing LOL. First, I built a box, then a couple canjo's, built another box, then decided to go the cigar box route, finished the 1st actual cigar box git, and have over 50 cigar boxes waiting for love...arghhhhhhh

oh, and I have another homemade box waiting to be finished as a res....never ends once started

Yep...can't stop. I'm well over 30 cigar box amp builds now. No end in site and the wife wants to burn my shop down

box avalanche? 30? 50? 

Oh boy...

Talk to Uncle John and ask for a sample of his elixer. I think he calls it Build Stop.

Wait.. is there really a way to stop? Asking for a friend...

Cuz I don't wanna, I'm gonna miss the deadline again on the build off but this time its cuz building xmas gifts so yeah just building building.. I did submit an xmas gift for it though. . so...

When I first got started I bought 10 boxes. I thought I might stop when I got through them, but then someone gave me three more, and I found six at the dump, my brother bought me two, my friend bought me three more, I bought a box while on vacation. I have empty tea tins, and empty cans that are in line to become canjos. I've bought tone wood for a custom build...

Where was I going with this...Oh yes, I will stop when I have no more ideas on what to build, and I always have an idea.....

I might stop after I have no more ideas AND nobody left to gift an instrument to...

My mentor told me to never stop.,.,,the end comes any way.,.,,.Building CBG's is GREAT therapy.,.,take it from me.,.,.,

Happy Holidays to all !!!!

Cigar boxes are a gateway to other odd things we string up and play! There are CBGA meetings on Saturday.

Why would you want to stop? Nobody's stopping. Just start, the rest will fall into place. The path will be revealed. BTW, you're doomed :) ! Soon, you'll be calling the local hardware establishment a music parts store, especially the fastener, lumber, and plumbing departments.
