Well played, Harold. Keep at this, we can see you are headed in a good direction!

Volume issue is likely how small the area of the sound hole is, aside lack of resonator material and thickness of lid, also the acoustic coupling of the lid to the can is a bit weak in this iteration.. The groove in the lid for the can rim isn't as tight as I wanted , was hard to do with tools on hand

Ah...success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts. So said Winston Churchill, well known canjo virtuoso.

Thanks.. And it is. Especially compared to my video... Hehe

That’s great Harold. Good play on that twanger. Looks and acts sturdy. Good design.
