Anybody have any ideas on how to make a stick from Lowes look like a neck/fretboard that's a hundred years old?

metal cigar boxes

Started Oct 5, 2010 0 Replies

Hey guys.  I recently acquired some metal cigar boxes.  The older ones (they look WAY old) I think are made of tin.  I don't know what the modern ones are made of but they're kind of flimsy, so maybe…Continue

Hi Larry, thanks for the warm welcome. I've done only a dozen or so builds some are posted on our web sit and every once and awhile we pull one out for one of our gigs. The pic on my profile is a painted scetch of a performance at the Savana Folk Society where my wife played one of my cb-dulcimers. Thanks again.

Thanks for the welcome!  I got a CBG kit for christmas from the wife.  I have been interested in building guitars my whole life and figure this should be a good kick start.  I'm currently in the fact finding stage but hope to kick off when time allows.  I checked out your pictures you do some beautiful work, man!  I only hope I can come close to that.  I'm sure I'll have tons of questions if you don't mind helping a noob.  Anyhow thanks again!
