Yowzers! These were all given to me by my sister in law. They belonged to her grandfather. I don’t know where to begin! Some are quite small, but I hope to build them all

Happy building time ahead!

There was one addition box which I built before thinking to take this pic. Next up will be an Optimo.

I plan to try some nylon strings on a small box. Thus far have only used nylon for a couple ukes. A piezo disc will still give nylon a boost, correct??
