Hi Brian, many thanks for the encouragement. I'm happy to be here! Would you believe that about 10 days ago, I'd never heard of CBGs - I had no idea!!! It was instant love and I set out learning as much as I can. Within a couple of days I bought some tools, some boxes etc and set to work right away walking my way through my first one! It's been an exciting week! Thank you for sharing some names for me to explore.
The timber came from a demolished conservatory, they were replacing it with a plastic one. It pays to get to know local builders. Not sure what the wood is , some mahogany substitute.Finished with Danish oil.
My wife bought a few of those printed metal plates thinking they would make interesting guitar fronts.

I'm pretty new to the whole CBG thing. My first "build" was literally a kit I only had to wire it up. Currently, I'm learning to play this thing.
In addition, I'm collecting items now for my first scratch build. I've been online searching for ideas because I love building stuff.
My wife is wondering why I'm so giddy look on the old inter-web, Then she looks at the websites I'm checking out, thinking I might be look at scantly clad women. Then she says, cigar boxes? Really? Shakes her head and walks away.
Anyway, I really digging this. I see how this can become an addiction from so many angles. Looking forward to building and playing!
