Cigar Box Guitar Building

It has taken me a while to get the guitar building post up but here it is.  First I have to thank or blame Glenn Watt for this new hobby addiction.   The following is basically how I built my first cigar box guitar.

About this blog

This blog is about some of the projects I have done, along with some ramblings from me and my current projects and ideas.  It will be like my mind and my shop, a small unorganized buffet of stuff.  There will be some art, some jewelry, some machines, some tools, some thoughts and hopefully some projects that you can use.
   If you decide to duplicate any of my ideas  judge for yourself the safety of the project and the safety of the method creating it.  This is not about how to do it, but it is about my projects and how I did them.  I don't proclaim that my projects are all creations of my mind, some are and some are not..
   Here is a list of youtube videos that I have done:
This video is about a goose that helps raise baby ducks
This video is how to build a miniature green house using picture frames
This video is how to build a lapidary sphere machine using recycled cordless drill motors

 Here is how to build a solar dryer out of a file cabinet.
How about repairing the rusted refrigerator door around the ice maker?  Here is my solution.

  A bicycle light set from a led work light that has different lighting modes

  How about building cigar box guitars.  This video shows you how to make an inexpensive combo fret template and miter box.

Soon I will have  cigar box info on how I build them.  Stay tuned.
