  • I'm don't think I have a problem but my wife is wondering if there is a spousal support group.
  • "Nature's Lawnmowers"...Sounds good to me.

  • You know you are addicted if you own more that 7 CBG and the grass in your yard is over 3 feet high.

  • This morning the manager of the Home depot chased me away from his dumpster cause I was diving to find the perfect wood scrap for a tail piece

  • Hi! My name is Dano and I'm addicted to things with strings! LOL!!!

  • Just finished build #10 a couple of weeks back and figured that considering the time of year I would take a little time off before the next one. Since that time, a box and boards out in the shop have been showing signs of a new build coming together. Is it possible that I could be building in my sleep? Do I have an alternate me that is out there working while I am doing other things?

    I'm beginning to think that there must be some Cigar Box Pixies living out there. Should I call an exterminator or just watch and see what happens?

  • Ah...This explains a lot of things. Tinkerbell is one of my inspirations and I have a closet where all of the boxes are stored together. I shall go and meditate in the room of the closet and all will be good.

  • Thomas, CBG's work on the reverse Tinkerbell principle. When a box is converted another one pops into existence. Storing them together does increase this effect as does scouring flea markets, junk stores and ebay. Be at peace with yourself.

  • Is this a Karma thing? Seems like for every one I build at least two more boxes or tins show up. I've built six assorted instruments so far and now I have a dozen assorted boxes, cans and cookie tins waiting. I think I need a bigger closet.
