Gary, just read your "Mr. Keys Guitar" post, Very nice. I know pick, don't know you, but would like to. curious, my friend has a saw mill that can be pulled as a trailer. helped cut a bunch of wood and a nice piece of walnut, the kept warping. how long did you need to dry your poplar wood? Here's a photo where we cut some rather green oak for friends truck bed. HEAVY.

I picked up a CBG kit at the latest festival in St. Louis and wondered if you know who I can talk to to get more. There is no contact info in the kit. Thanks!
