Hi Ted, I have enjoyed being part of the club house and had lots of respect for you as a builder and one who wants to help everyone. When Shane banned you it was a surprise to everyone. I thought this was going to be another new place to learn, but all it has become is like the place Shane had before the nation. You yourself said it was your fault for you getting banned, and I admired that a lot. But all this crap about Shane, I don't like and if this was going on about you I wouldn't it either. And if the guys aren't picking on Shane then it's someone else. Nothing new here it's the same old bullshit. I thought your place would be another great site to come and learn, I guess not. I don't contribute anything to your site but have learned from some of the guys here. but as for getting on the forum to chat can't see it. I wish you the best of luck in everything you do in 2010. I just wish these members would act a little more mature. I'm 63 and seen enough crap in my life time and don't need to see it here. Where it should be friendship and helping out others instead of knocking down others. You can remove me from membership if you like.
God Bless

Hey Ted, thanks for the invite to the builders challenge group. Sadly i cant enter the kitchen sink contest now becasue i have 3 build's going right now wich take up my free time and little spare money i have :( i liked the idea though. A Reso-sink double bass was the first thing that came to mind but i need to finish what i'm doing now because 2 projects are for paying customers.

Anyway, thanks for asking me to participate, maybe i'll be able to join the next one.

Cheers and best wishes, Frans

Hi Ted, thanks for welcoming. Your pickups look grreat, it inspired me to wind my own - and it works!! Nails, small magnets, popsickle sticks, wire - real low tec, but mine (although there's some buzzing).
Anyway, it's great to see all your designs!

Thanks Ted for the warm welcome. When I found out the other day you had started this group I took the tour and it just feels very cozy here. I'll start filling in my photos and some tunes once the holiday "spirits" wears off.
Cheers, FIN

Ted, nice to find you and hear from you. Thanks for all the nice comments. Diane gave me a lot of advice on the dulcimer build including the zero fret. I really enjoy building. Still trying to get the hang of playing. Glad to be here, I see a lot of my favorite friends already.

Thanks for the compliments. I'm really a newby at this.

I wish I could claim the head stocks as my own, but I was inspired by pictures of a Sam Kamaka cigar box uke from the 40's. It was really a concession to necessity as I work on my porch when the weather is nice and I don't have any power tools or a shop. I'm glad you like them.

Thanks for the welcome, Ted. I'm getting ready for two electric builds, and your flatbeds look like the thing. I'll be in touch in the weeks ahead. Glad to find old friends and new!

Hey Ted,
I thought I had seen a bridge/s for four or three string cbg. for some reason Iam having a hard time cutting the slot with my dremel.Thinking about buying from you if they are tall enough.I put a fretless fretboard on top of my necks. Or maybe I can modify.
