KAREN FILM KANJO

"This one was built specifically for Karen Whitford. She's a photographer and this is her second film can CBG. In the article she credits the first one with inspiring her shop, Finds in the Fork, what an honor!"

No problem, Mike. Feel free to "adapt" away. Always good to add on a new friend.

So you just take a hacksaw and cut straight down the screw to create a channel for the string?

Hi Catfish,

You liked my diagram of the Flying "V" Dulcimer. So, I thought you'd also like to read the build write-up I've done so far. That URL (link) is here:

http://www.cigarboxnation.com/group/HMRB101/forum/topics/my-flying-v-dulcimer-project

The project is kind of on hold after I managed to gouge my thumb with a chisel. But I suspect I'll be back to finish it in the coming weeks. When I do, I'll post more at the above link.

-Rand.

Thanks Mike, really appreciate the great comment on The Logjammer, and thanks for the Nation friendship. Have a great Christmas
