"I'm getting ready to start on my first resonator build, using a wooden champagne box with a stainless stove burner cover for the resonator. I expect that the box will be decent acoustically, but if I want to amplify it and not lose the reso…"

"I just shamelessly followed strumstick plans on the web (sort of at least).  The neck was cut like a tuning fork so the bottom could be spread out to form the sides of the body. I actually made the body way too big, so several frets are…"

"What about the baking soda and superglue trick to create a hard surface for the strings to ride on? Thinking you could file oversized grooves in the mahogany, fill with CA/soda, then clean it up with a file and recut string grooves in the hard stuff."

"Generally dowels help with alignment more so than adding strength. A well executed glue joint is every bit as strong as the wood itself"
