"Shane Speal used a regular cigar box and it worked great. My box was made by me out of cedar fence plank with red oak bracing. Wood can play a role, but like Brian said, I think the size of spring used and taughtness matters more along with where…"

Hi Paul! Thanks for the warm welcome! Most people call me Elissa, but I do love creativity.....Ray & I are having technical difficulties...just wanted to let everyone know that we are ok other than internet connection problems. We really miss everyone there a lot. Hope to catch up soon. I've been in the background for about 4 years so I feel like I know everyone except the newest members here....I sure hope this works this time. Four inch screen made me delete your comment, Paul. Sorry!
