OK, finally am getting started on my first CBG.
This one will probably be a pretty crude first attempt as it will be made with the few hand tools I have around here. Basically a coping saw, drill, and an old wood file. Got like 30 decent cigar boxes yesterday.
Stopped by Lowes and bought a couple pieces of Oak for the necks. Stopped by the local guitar shop and bought some used tuners. Will definitely be ordering further supplies online as they were pretty high on the used tuners and sort of pissed me off when they charged me fifty cents a piece for the little screw that secures the tuner to the stock.
This is the box I am going to use for my first attempt.
Figured I would use this one first as I have 5 of the same box in case I mess something up. So, I am now one of you and on my way to learning a fascinating skill. I only wish I had never bid on a used guitar on eBay now. Just got notification I won it. Oh well, guess I can use it as a study prototype to see how a more advanced model is made to give me tips for the future. Thanks for the info here and look for more progress reports soon.
