Welcome to the Clubhouse! How did you hear about us?
Reading Cigar Box Nation newsletter email; saw sidebar reference.
What instruments are you building or playing?
Baritone uke converted to tenor guitar - resolving intonation problems when I have time.

Other 4-string ideas/projects making little progress.

Occasionally I try tuning another aluminum carcass from an old hard drive case. I have 5 tuned so far chromatically...a lot of work, and it's based on suspending them from a node or dead spot to measure them. I think I need to start mounting them & recheck the tuning before I assume they are 'done'. I can tune the primary pitch that lasts the longest and loudest, but can do very little about other pitches that accompany those, or different ones excited by hitting a different side. I hope to get a full chromatic octave. Originally I wanted more, but it's getting frustrating.

Thank again, Ted.
You’ve really got the cake design perfected...each batch looks as perfect as the previous!

I think my neighbor goes to Stuart for a month in the winter, and parrot-sat for someone. The parrot rode places in the car with them and said whatever was on it’s mind...
