This is killing me. My son and I are Road Rally racing in upper Minnesota that weekend. He drives and I co-drive. We only get 2-3 events a year and he really wanted to do this one. It should be our last race as a "novice" team, so it's a big deal. I'm lucky to have an adult son who still wants to do things with dad.
I'll be thinking good thought for the Festival. Hope you have tons of fun.
Have you been to The Cigar Merchant in Blue Springs? They are on hwy 7 off I-70, I ask because the guy working when I stopped in told me the money from box sales goes to a local halfway house for addicts. A noble cause in my opinion. Not sure if you are close to it but just a gratuitous plug.
Hi Kevin, Just figured out that you are the "go to" guy for the KC CBG Fest. I'm from Minnesota, about ten hours from KC....I'm thinking seriously about coming to the event but want to know if you are going to have any vendor spaces available? I have a few CBGs and some other stuff to sell and it would help defray the expense of gas and hotel rooms if I had a chance to sell some stuff. Is anyone else going to be peddling their wares? Let me know!
Hi Kevin,first I sanded it down,then brushed black liquid shoe polish over it...let it dry,Then sand most of the polish off to what ever looks good to you....then stain with usual stain or just apply clear lacquer from the car spray shop! I got the idea off a vid on youtube showing how to create a flamed maple sunburst effect,sorry I have lost the link..good luck and let me know how you went
hello brother, I would like to know how to build wood-CBG, starting from the neck and body, then the scale as it should be, what steps do I fit in the scale, I'm new and I do not know where to start, I'm a luthier, but electric guitars , the cigar box guitar and a new instrument, which I'm very interested if you can get some drawings on how to do, thanks again, your Italian friend.......!!!
