Hi Ben, welcome to the Clubhouse! Glad to see you here buddy. Have any pics of the cookie tin build?

The focus here is on all types of handmade instruments. There are many helpful builders and players here and lots of Groups to teach and learn. We welcome participation so don't be shy.

Have a look around, introduce yourself in My Name Is... and add yourself to the Member Map. There's an active Chat Room where you can ask questions, offer help or just talk about anything with some great folks.

Most of all Have Fun!
