I’m a pretty primitive builder as far as it goes. Frets made of super glued toothpicks, string of several gauges of fishing line.  I don’t do it because I’m good at it, I do it because it is fun. I work with hand tools for the occasional evening when I can steal 15 minutes to get something done.

Despite all that, got to say, this has been a really supportive corner of the internet. The occasional comment or thumb up is a welcome thing. This hobby is a bit of an escape from life, the universe, and everything.  Rotten job, daughter’s autism, blood pressure, etc. seems to give a breather when I do this.

thanks.

cheers Ghostbuttons. everyone needs a hobby or a getaway. Everyone builds for different reasons. Yes, very supportive and good people here at CBN.  Build on dude.

Best group I've found since I left Facebook! Toothpick frets! Please post a picture very interesting.

Hey Ghostbuttons, I hear ya buddy. I use CBG building for the same escape reasons. Also like to add, that as a builder who is lucky enough to have all I could ever need in a workshop and materials, I do understand and appreciate, and admire, people who get the same results with far less, and carry more baggage.

Good on ya,

Taff.

Nice.  Thank you.

Awesome Ghostbuttons! Guess that's the same reason I play. 

We would really like to see a pic of what you do!
