Nice to see a canuk corner.  I live and make various sizes of sawdust here in Osoyoos, BC. 

Been building CBG's for about a year, maybe two.  Been playing with small body guitars as well.  Made a few of those now but I do like the CBG's better.  Build mostly three and four stringers.  Found CBN good for tips and discovered a few on my own.  Hope to see some pics of some of your builds here.
