This customer saw us at the Folk Festival and wanted a pair of 3-string CBGs so she could join us for our next meeting at the library. These are repurposed components from a workshop that was cancelled by Covid a few years ago plus some new ones.

Thanks for chiming in Uncle John and T-Gripped! The vibe of vintage boxes is hard to beat. I still have enough repurposed components for another 8 if customers want them. A good part of the work is already done, so it should allow for responsive builds.

Beautiful boxes! Nicely done.

A great looking and old timey pair.

Comment by Doug Thorsvik on Wednesday

I appreciate the positive feedback Brian! Didn’t have the time for scratch builds, so I took inventory of what was on hand and and some of my latest approaches to building. Customer chose the boxes from the nine I had ready for the cancelled workshop. Boxes I had written off, but now I think they will all take on a new life too.

A lil’ old & some new, those look great Doug, they’re starting out in the right foot indeed!!

Thanks Alan! I actually did a minor update on the bridge design and put a bigger base on it; I think it accents the double headed nail better.
