Oklahoma 1936 License Plate #134-651 By John Bolton
I was made in late 1935 in the Oklahoma State Prison at Mc Alester. I was black with yellow letters. I was issued in Goodland County in 1936 and bolted on the rear of a gray and black 31' Ford coupe with a rumble seat. I couldn't see where we were going, but when the dust wasn't too bad, I could see where we'd been.
The Ford belonged to Gibson. He had a place in…Continue
In my never-ending (and silly) quest to build everything myself from found items, here's a quick tutorial on making your own nuts and bridges from plastic dominos.
I read somewhere that really old dominos were sometimes made from bone, so I hit all the local flea markets and thrift stores, but no joy. So, during one of my daily visits to the World's Largest Retailer, I bought a $5 tin of standard plastic dominos.…Continue

Referring to flat pickups, I perceive a lot of statements and many points of views at CBN. Talking about points of views, I would like to share mine.
At midlife, I am studying for being an OT; we do a lot of role play and practices with everyday tasks such as cooking. I want to explain my perception in a story about the housewife Eleanor who is baking cakes. For the avoidance of doubts, I am serious about my ongoing profession and the people around me, whether present or in an virtual…Continue
You can easily cut a Scarf Joint, for your guitar necks, using a Radial Arm saw! The 1st step is, set your saw arm to cut at desired angle! ( usually 13-15 degs) next: using a straight piece of hardwood, set up a fence, 90 square to table fence, and at leading edge of saw blade path.…Continue

Every December the past few years, my band has played in Palo Pinto TX, about 70 mi west of Ft Worth. It's county seat for the county of same name even though it's unincorporated. But it has quite a history as you can see from this small sample here. J. Tom Butler must have been some musician. This "cello" he built from scrap wood and what seems to be bailing wire (or piano strings) is a gem of Americana folk art and cigar box greatness. The bridge is…Continue

Found an old mid to late 40's tube am radio & phonograph console at a local flea market this past spring. It was in sad shape. Decades of dust and furniture polish dulled the wood finish. The amp receiver chassis was filthy. The tubes/valves were covered in dust and old tape, the individual tube numbers written on them. One of the 4 wooden knobs had split in half.
After replacing most of the old paper in oil "oozing wax" capacitors and bad resistors and verifying everything else…Continue

Series of recordings/screen casts on Riley's washtub guitar, then my washtub bass, then my walking stick banjo. Apologies for my playing, singing, and the video/sound quality. Just a funny idea I had.
And I have no shame so I'm gonna share
