"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…"

"Finally got a few hours to get one of my benches cleaned off and organized - far too many months overdue. Now how long can I keep it that way?"

"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."

MadGomer replied to declan foley's discussion Canjo tuning in the group Building a Cigar Box Guitar 101
"Start by confirming that your scale length is correct for the fret spacing you used. Measure from the point of contact between the string and "nut" and the point of contact with the bridge. If that's what you intended, then start…"

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