love the natural look the tin lid rocks

Comment by Rob Ingram on February 10, 2014 at 12:59pm

Yes, there is a hole under the lid. I left enough underneath to screw it to the top around the edges.

Agree totally with turtlehead, clean, simple and rustic were exactly what I thought when I saw it.  I favor the 'traditional' look that doesn't forget it's a box and salvaged materials.  Is there a hole routed underneath the can lid or is it just fastened in place?

 

My Dad called me "Dutchman".

I see. My Dad was quite a fisherman too. So much so he was known as "Catfish Bob"! He called me "Pete" why I have no idea. I was totally surprised how well this lil dude sounded. They all seem to sound different ... part of the fun ! Thanks Man and Keep on Pickin' !!!

Very cool story Rob and thanks. Turtlehead is a family nickname I've adopted from the time my Dad caught a huge snapper when he was fishing.  It's turned into a Moby Dick kind of story over the years.  I bet that guitar has some nice "plunk" - the combination of the can lid with the thick sides seems to resonate well for me and is a great combination of a banjo and a guitar sound.

Yep. Regular old 3/4 pine box with 1/4 plywood top and back. Works pretty well ! I like to keep it fun and simple and see what it sounds like. Experimenting is interesting to see what works and sounds good ! Sure do like your music Turtlehead ! Back when I was in the band my favorite beer joint we played at was called "Turtleheads"! It's a small seafood and bar type place in Joplin MO !

Yep, looks like my kind of git!  Clean, simple and rustic.  Homemade box?

Thanks Uncle John ! I got the idea from Turtleheads video of "I wanna play that Rock n Roll" ! I think he used a metal coffee can lid. Ol' Turtlehead's music is perdy darn good !! Back drop is blanket on my "easy" chair.

Yup.  Like the reso.  Even cooler for some reason that it was from chili.  Cool back drop/

Diddley Bow with chili can lid reso ... looks kinda silly but rings out like a bell !
