Hullo Ted, thank for the birthday wishes, it came as a bit of a surprise. I have just finished making a three stringed guitar based upon an old timber nail box and other re-used timber. The next long term project is to learn to play it. I have attached a pic. or three. Cheers for now and thanks for the website, pete429.JPG430.JPG431.JPG

Hi Ted,

Thanks for having me, I have not long started making cigar box guitars and at the moment I am just feeling my way around and taking things easy till I get the hang of it.

I eventually want to make all my own parts and maybe write some music for the CBG.

I will talk again soon, thanks again.

Greetings Ted,

Thank you for the wonderful B'day wishes and very cool cake! Nice surprise!

I built my first cbg last winter and am now working on two more at the same time. Even though retired, finding time to learn and build is still difficult. 

I look fwd. to being part of this group and I've already had several answers and gained lots of help from previous posts on your site.

There seems to be a great bunch of builders and musicians here and I'm very happy to become part of it.

Thank you again Ted, for the welcome and good wishes! BTW - from the comments I see it's your b'day too - a happy one to you also!

Thanks Ted. it's nice to be remembered.  I am still pottering around in my shed, it's just different down here (much colder climate, my hands aren't what they used to be).

This is the view from my shed door :)
