Well the darn title puts my mouth to watering for a good beer and a brisket sandwich!   Build and play on, sir.

Ahh,   I looked at your photos and vids.   I have admired the hobo axe guitars in the past.  Very inventive and nice.  I like your use of dominoes.   

Did you formerly use Hobo Axe as your CBN name?

I just wanted to show some people my work, I have been getting a lot of attention with my Cigar boxes. Trying to keep the music alive.

Good title.  I like your logo.   What are you wishing to do here?
