Scroll saw fret slot cutting - I need a thicker blade - help a sister out please

Hey y'all, so when I started fretting I went with a StewMac fretsaw which does a fantastic job. But I have chronic hand/wrist issues, and the labor of hand cutting the slots leaves me hurting. I…Continue

"Andries, thank you! I agree this ceramic guitar sounds a lot like a bass. I used acoustic guitar A & D strings on it with a 25.5" scale. My good friend Eric Denton said it reminded him of Pink Floyd. "

What do you find most interesting about cigar box guitars? (If you do not enter something meaningful here, your membership may be rejected).
Making music on an instrument you made yourself is magical! I'm a sculptor by profession and love making things by hand. Took bass lessons in high school then learned rhythm guitar about 18 years ago. Just started building CBGs for fun last year. Now I can't stop.

My first solo build - and first post

Posted on January 2, 2016 at 10:54am 20 Comments

After designing a few CBGs and lap diddley bows that my husband brought to life with power tools, I made my first solo creation this week, and I'm smitten with my guitar style diddley bow. 

While I've made 2 lap diddley bows and 4 CBGs…

Thanks for the friend add Janis. We'll look forward to more inspiring stuff from you. Have a great day.

nice work.

I think a couple of things are at work in you making top content. First it's a very cool first solo build and your playing is great for just starting to play slide. Another thing, that we've discussed among ourselves, is the large number of old, retired, greybeards around here. For a lot of us it's wonderful to see someone who doesn't fit that description and has obvious enthusiasm for homemade music. 

Oh, I'm glad you liked the  U bass!

At 2:04pm on January 4, 2016, Jim Morris said…

Hey Janis, you made the top content section on your first vid! Good stuff!

Hey Janis, this is the super short scale U-Bass.

I spent a bit of time today looking at some of your pottery/stoneware vids. Excellent stuff! After looking at you ceramic djembe it got me thinking about a ceramic banjo. Wouldn't be too different from the drum, it would just have to have a hole for the neck to pass thru and a small hole on the opposite end to secure the neck with a screw. That would be a pretty cool combination of your skills.
