I'm Mike aka hushnel

I live south of Miami in Homestead, in 94 days I'll retire to my Farm and workshop up in Wellborn FL, just outside of Lake City. I've played since 1961, I was 8 back then. I still play everyday and get a kick out of building instruments.

Mike,

Thanks for your site, which is now bookmarked on my computer.  I am still in process of completing my Shop, to build Cigar Box Guitars, and whatever comes next.  I live on my 4+ acres, in a land of Cedars and Oaks, which two volcanoes made, and ocean use to be a long time ago, outside Wimberley, TX.  I plan on posting pictures of my Shop soon.  I hope we can share our experiences of making music.

John
