yo fellow luddite, bought a new blade for my surform today to hack some more chunks out of my first build in order to "make it better". hack, scrape, chip and splinter. thats the way!

Cheers for the request and it was a pleasure to meet you at the weekend. A fellow luddite hitting bits of wood with other bits of wood and sometimes metal when we are feeling fancy. There's got to be a competition in that - who can make a servicable cbg using the most basic of tools - axes at the ready boys!

Good to meet you this weekend mate. Got home rooted through the booze cupboard and found a very nice 12 yr old Glenlivet - better than that it was in a tin presentation box. Weird shape sort of roundy triangular but I think I have figured it. That is now on the list for the dark nights

Will have to do it again some timel

I have started a CBN group entitled, "How to Play CBG" It is my hope and intention to encourage the "Wealth of Talent" here on the Nation to share their knowledge and skill to further the CBG movement. Please consider contributing an instructional "video" link to this group. If you are a viewer seeking instruction, please feel free to write. If you have any suggestions or know other players who you think may want to post instructional "video" links, please contact me. Thank you for your interest and support, Keni Lee
