Hi all. English guy living in Finland. Started making my first box guitar this week. I was looking at buying a resonator guitar but making my own looks like a lot more fun. 

I found a nice old box and a lot of random "junk" in the barn I think should work for a makeshift cone. Looking at this from a novice point of view I think making the neck is going to be the challenge.
