Fret Saw 1

"Thanks Bob, took me awhile to get it done too, and I was pretty anxious to make that slot in the sled.  Whew.  I wasn't happy with any of the birch ply at the big box stores and the nearest Rockler is a couple hundred miles…"

What do you find most interesting about cigar box guitars? (If you do not enter something meaningful here, your membership may be rejected).
I recently took up the guitar and someone mentioned them to me and I ordered a kit and thought this could be a fun hobby to do at my girlfriends house where we share a work space.
I just got a request to build a four string mandolin for a friend and came here looking for plans or other and other ideas.
