Greeting!

Very new to the CBG craze. It started when my youngest (she's 30) saw a vid of someone playing a one string canjo. She mentioned she that thought it would be fun to build and play. I have built instruments before, Dulcimers and Ukulele. I looked into it a bit and decided the CBG would be a more practical and fun instrument to build. Both my daughters agreed. For Christmas this year I have bought them each a box and all the hardware needed. Then I figured if I am going to guide my kids in this project, I had better build one first. That one turned into two, #3 is out in the garage about half done! I am looking forward to my girls and son-in-law opening their box's for Christmas, and even more looking forward to working with my kid's afterword.
