"Hello Peggy, the 17" scale of the Hobo Fiddle kit is roughly the same as a tenor ukulele. However, while the kit really wasn't designed with steel strings, it may be able to handle them as long as you stay on the lighter gauge. That being…"

HOBO FIDDLE

I just finished building a hobo fiddle from a kit and it turned out really well.  This one has the nylon strings.  I was wondering if anyone has built one and installed steel strings and if so what guage would work for the higher pitch.  See More

Cigar box art.

Posted on January 19, 2018 at 6:55am 4 Comments

Does anyone know of any sites that offer printable cigar box art or labels?  I have 2 plain boxes and am looking for ideas.   Kind of thinking of something vintage looking that I could glue on the top  and then verathane over it.
