Wow, that are some great ideas! I never thought of old furniture and pallets as wood for guitars. My dad sometimes brings a little piece of wood, because he's a truck driver and can sometimes be found on building sites. I will surely make use of these tips!

Haha, yeah I noticed I'm already thinking about some other projects, but as I'm still just 15 years old, it's hard to get a little job to earn money for funding all this fun. So I guess I'll stick with being a paperboy for a while...

Hi Bob,
Very nice on regarding your grandkids. I wish Lamoni was closer, I would like to meet and play some. Too far! I was looking at your photos. You are and advanced and high end builder using good materials. I am a bit of a hack.
I need to go back and fine tune/ finish some work and get back to playing instead of building.

Hi Robert,
Thanks for the friend's invitation. First time I got one, hope the acceptance came through. I like the Courier and Ives canjo. Pretty work. I had been looking for the right can and settled on an aluminum ammo box. Built it last weekend as a 4 banger and it sounds and plays nice.
Good to know there is another Iowan making and playing CBGs. People around here think I am the only one. I hope to have instruments for each grandkid that shows interest. My oldest grandchild is 14 and doing super on a storebought 6 string. :}
Good wishes. John Bolton, Harlan
