Thanks AGP - it's a little unusual in that it doesn't use classical tuners.  Also, it's got the standard dimensional lumber neck width of 1.5 inches (37-38 mm?)...    I'm sure yours will be inspiring as well - - and probably employ galvanized steel roofing as well!

"Sweeeeet Rev", looks Gr888888888, I still haven't got around to building a Traditional Style Strummer before, but this fine build might encourage me to do something about that!  :-D

Uncle John, Maddog & Tom E  - thanks!  She sounds pretty good to me!  This one took a while from start to finish, mainly because we moved over the course of building it.  Glad that I added to the overall depth of the body.

Great instrument!

Beauty for sure Gary! Bet it sounds amazing!

Oh, Gary.  That is breath taking.  Really a beauty and I bet it sounds good.

Thanks, Dave!  Strummersticks are pretty cool!
