Sorry to take so long responding. I dont get on-line much. You are building some beautiful stuff! Do you have any videos playing them?
To build resonators I buy a set of cones for a tri-cone, and use one each…"
"Thank you sir, The sunburst is not that hard to do. Especially if you are like me and like the relic look. On the first ones I did I used spray paint. Now I use and airbrush. Hollowbelly's started out as a 2 bottle wine box…"

howdy stevie, i just stopped by to answer your question about the f-holes on the cohiba resonator i built. i have seen them on a build that ju ju did so i asked him if ok for me to use them--he say yep.so i loked at the pic then i copied the pattern on cardboard and adjusted the size of them with pattern work,once i was happy with the cardboard pattern i cut the holes out of the cardboard the located where i wanted them to be on the box--then pencil drew them on the box.after that all i had to do was drill several holes and on the part that has the tail to them i used a coping saw to cut them to shape.hope this process helps you.thanks for your comment.
