Hello, thank you for good words and, pls, see my post with pictures of instruments.
All the best.
Were you friends with Dave Lynas? He is where I learned about this craft. He was my best friend.
Hey Darryl, can you tell me how to view tutorials on different CBG insturments. Like a canjo, I have not learned how to make these.
Hope you Get well soon Darryl ! stuck whit Covid can bee a blessing and a Bommer at the same time ! all the Best !
Thanks for your suggestions for making a box.
For power tools, I have two sanders, a circular saw, and a drill. On my first build I used hand saws. I do have a couple of chisels.
I looked up finger joints and that seems doable, practicing on some old wood. I should probably get the minimum kind of power saw.
Hi Darryl, Thanks for the welcome, as requested heres a pic of my 1st CBG. (slide) Bit rough round the edges but sounds pretty good. Will be using in the studio.

I'm a Craiglist free stuff addict....Saw a radial arm saw listed...But by the time I found the house...It was gone...Get an email two days later saying guy never showed up....It was mine if I wanted it....That made my day....Will come in handy for cutting fret slots..Gave the guy some cash for his time and effort...Still made out pretty good on the deal

gotta love it when you spend a few hours making a finger joint jig, and just about the time that you think that its running good, the index pin snaps off...hopefully the glue joint repair will hold up...oh well, enough whining for now

just finished my first license plate guitar...guess what i ran into most is, body brace blocks getting in way of input jacks. or the pickup cavity cutting in too deep into the neck . already started on 2nd one, gave the first one away for a birthday gift.
