"Great playing and great sound.  I built a steal string tenor a few years ago, but I could never get the intonation right.  I think I will try again.  What string sizes are you using?"

How did you learn about Cigar Box Nation?
I've been looking at cigar box videos for a couple of years before I began building. It became quickly apparent the Cigar Box Nation is the center of the CBG Universe.

Thanks again Rob,the hook serves no function I just like the look of the extended heel.

Thanks Rob

Thank you Rob.  I try my best.

i was not while working, i slipt on a slab of ice on the parkinglot, i was of balance and hit my closed hand on the prikkely icy slab, the feeling is coming back now, but i still will be a while Thanks for asking Greeeeettssszz A.D.

 Thanks-but compared to most of the builders here I consider myself a rank amateur.

 Even so,  i'm having fun scaring the neighbors with my latest build, my "Ukuklele for Dummies" book for reference and my horribly unskilled fingerings...  :)

At 3:33pm on April 6, 2016, gary sheldon said…

Thanks, Rob.  I have built 10 guitars and 17 ukes.  Mostly doing ukes these days.  Easier to build, play and sell.  I am starting to use Chinese necks and fretboards because they are so damn cheap and the quality seems ok.

At 10:20pm on March 10, 2016, Derek Rose said…

You are welcome, Rob, thx for accepting.

I used to post there a lot too, and Ukulele Cosmos but not many of the folks from before seem to be around those sites. Also used to frequent the 4th Peg way back when.

I run hot and cold on building due to the day job and honey-do list...  

At 10:17am on November 19, 2015, Lane Martin said…

Thanks, Rob. It's just something I ended up with that wasn't a "normal" uke headstock. You've done a lot of nice work yourself. That's one thing I love about this site...all the amazing creativity.

Thanks for posting pics from the Martin tour. I'd love to do that one day.

Think so Rob!, flatten the graphite rods,so the cross rod do'nt slide, tap the box and sound appears, maybee a cover over the matchbos,Cloth or rosterwire, for finish touch, head phone, speaker or direct in a recording device, Words  above are not (         ) FOR ANY DAMAGE TO ............ but great fun to do whit kids,see there Faces, when the sound come out ! Greeeettssszz A.D
