Just finished a poor man's Dobro a couple of hours ago. the idea had been stewing around in my head for some time and lo and behold, I'm pleased she was built. It has sustain until next Tuesday! Hot glued a piezo on the back side of the paint can lid (but it's awesome as an acoustic, too). 23 inch scale and every thing on it is Gitty with the exception of the neck , lid, sticker and paint. The neck says Psalm 98:4. Verse 4 starts off "Make a joyful noise..." which I thought was apropos (means fitting and to the point). Crank up the bass and watch out, this thing is awesome! Here are 5 pics for your kind consideration.

Not true!  You build cooler stuff than I do.

Good evening!  In this instance, I found the record label by Googling and then saved the photo.  Transferred the pic to a DVD label and carefully transferred the label to the paint can lid.  (I live in Newton.)

Where did you get that decal? As a fellow Iowan I would love to have one of those!

I'm new around here and I have yet to build anything, but I'm enjoying learning everything that I can.
