Thank you for the suggestions. There is indeed a well-known wood-working supply store near my home. The guys over there were full of info when I was re-doing my autoharp. I bet any one of them would take on a project like this pedal and find it easy-peasy. (look at all those hyphenated words!) I am looking forward to snooping around this site. So many fun things!!

Brian, I looked through your photos for an example where you used molding for a fretboard, but couldn’t find one. I did note the use of toothpick frets, good on you! Doug

Thank you Brian. I just picked up a few cigar boxes in the Beale St. Blues district in Memphis TN. They weren't aware of any cigarbox guitar festivals in or around Beale St. Do you know of any in the Memphis, TN area?
