Hey Woodie!  Thanks so much for the link to the club house.  Danged if there ain't other people making some wild instruments.  Love the pictures of your workshop.  Mine is a wreck again LOL.  Got four special orders going one and finishing up the cello and stomp box.  I posted some vids of both.  I love my Goat Stomper!!  thank you sooooo much for the help in making this one.  I did end up putting a 2" vent in the bottom.  I think it does improve the sound both amplified and acoustic.   I am keeping this one but will be making one to sell soon.  Now I just gotta learn how to play it LOL

Hi Ellwod, welcome to the Clubhouse! Glad you made it.

The focus here is on all types of handmade instruments and music. There are lots of 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!
