"Haha nice one Jef and congratulations. Someone once said that coming 2nd makes you the 1st loser. That guy is now in hospital (just kidding!) and like Jef says, all who took part now have nice shiny instruments to show for it.…"

"Okay, here's my effort! The Kettle-Strum. Not how I originally planned it - was meant to have an aluminium neck with wooden fretboard attached, but found it was beyond my milling skills at the moment! So it's just a stove-top kettle, with…"

uke 2 001

"Thanks mate, I'm still a bit scared of doing bolt-on necks, but must give it a go. I'm sure I'd get a better acoustic sound if I did it that way, though the sound is still ok, as long as I leave a space between the lid and the neck.…"

Profile Information

Welcome to the Clubhouse! How did you hear about us?
Glad to be here! I heard about this site from a link at Cigar Box Nation. So pleased you're still around Ted!
What instruments are you building or playing?
So far I've built three pretty standard cigar box guitars, all neck-thru with piezo's. They sound great (to my amateur ears) and are improving each time. At the moment I am attempting a jelly (jello) - mould resonator, amplified using the guts from an old microphone, which is totally inspired by Bairfoot Cajuns' masterpiece and my favourite ever CBG. Finding this one way more challenging but getting there slowly...
