Just caught myself staring at the safety shower at work, thinking that the shower head would make a good resonator.........sigh!

Next up, 3 hours spent walking aimlessly at your local home improvement store. You keep seeing stuff that you could make an instrument out of...

Welcome to the club. See you at the thrift shop........

If the shower head in your bathroom is still connected to your plumbing then there is still hope. Hope to see if it would work as well as the one at work might work or not. : ) 

I have a broken mic stand, saving the parts for a future build of IDKW, lol

I don't do garage sales, or antique shops, BUT every since I got into this hobby, every place is a potential gold mine of parts. It's only by the good graces of my will power that I don't stop and shop at every damn garage sale I see.

LOL......

That's simply your creativity at work.

Loosing it would have seen you plot how report a "defective" or "worn out" showerhead, and volunteering to replace it and dispose of the defective one via "recycling". And then gauging how often this would work in the future.

I once saw an awesome floor drain cover in a fancy restroom.....if I'd had a screw driver with me I'm afraid it could have ended up in a CBG.
Yesterday while walking into town I spied some cool metal tipped chopsticks in a "free" pile in front of a house, yup, they are now sitting on my workbench. Building CBG's has forever altered my view of the material world. I'm afraid my wife is less than thrilled that I'm gaining a reputation as the "junk guy" though.

this little guitar is made from left over tubings. my son now owns this.

It's a disease, and we're all affected. I recommend at least two weeks off work in your workshops trying to sweat it out.
All the best from Bill. :D
