Convert a speaker to a battery-powered amplifier

Posted on August 13, 2012 at 4:37pm 0 Comments

This looks good--

The article at Hack A Day links to www.instructables.com/id/Portable-Retro-Hi-Fi-Speaker/

School Boxes

Posted on March 27, 2012 at 4:54am 2 Comments

My second CBG was given to a child and I wasn't too worried about it being "politically incorrect" on account of the smoking connection because his parents are smokers.  But, I probably won't do it again.  Instead, I'll use a school box like this from Amazon-- This box is manufactured by General Box Company, Waycross, Georgia, USA, and they sell this and some other school boxes…

CBG #2

Posted on March 25, 2012 at 1:03pm 1 Comment

Cardboard box with very light reinforcing.  The neck is birch veneer and the box reinforcing is really light pine or something like that--all the wood came from a pallet made in Europe.  The lid is held on with four tiny screws.

18.75 inch scale length,…

CBG number 1

Posted on March 21, 2012 at 5:17am 2 Comments

My first CBG.  I didn't have a box handy so I built one about 8 1/2 x 11 x 1 1/2 inches.  The top, bottom, and fret board are a little thicker and stiffer than door skin plywood; the neck is scrounged (free) birch veneer plywood (12 plies).  The…

Hey Dan - good to hear from you over there! I'm kinda thinking Medway in Ohio is a bit prettier than Medway in England! We're a very built up densely populated area about 30 miles east of London in the county of Kent. Very historic area - my house is about 120 years old (relatively new by local standards!) but I look out onto a church which is 11th century so people have lived here for a heck of a long time!! Catch up with you soon fella with CBG gossip and news from this side of the pond. All the best, Malc.
