Can anyone help me identify these birds?

"Those are Chit Birds, also known  as slackers in the military.  During boot camp the only way to change their behavior was to invite them to a party.  They could bring their own blanket if they desired."

"I have a few wine crates as well.  I'm thinking a 2-string bass for one; just need to start on it.  At least one is huge - maybe 6 bottles or so?  I'm intrigued by your success and maybe just the motivation I need!"

"I’m so taken back by the loud acoustic resonance I don’t know if I want to use up the 90+ cigar boxes on my shelves. Plus, I don’t smoke but I LOVE wine!"

"Thanks Doug. It was an experiment. I made this neck a couple years ago for a big cookie tin. I got tired of adding screws to stop rattle noise so I took the neck off and tossed the tin."

The pussycaster was six years ago, and the cat bowl on this latest along with its box have been sitting in my garage waiting to be finished since then (you can't rush these things)

Glad I was able to provide inspiration Bob

Thanks for all the info.  Life got really busy for a while and I stopped paying much attention to this site.  What with the whole coronavirus thing, life has slowed down, and finances have just got to where I can kind of pick up where I left off.    My apologies for dropping out of contact.  I hope you and yours are all safe and sound!

Good to meet you yesterday at the Republic of TX CBG Festival. I started an album here: https://cigarboxnation.com/photo/albums/republic-of-tx-cigar-box-guitar-festival-11-2019

Since CBN only lets you upload 10 photos per day, It'll probably take me a few days to get all of them uploaded.
