"It looks nice. I like the shape and it sounds good. She obviously didn't have a lot of building experience because she made a few mistakes and she worked harder than she had too, but she did good and learned along the way. Nice playing too."

"I'm in the No Rules camp. If you built it yourself, then we all want to see it (Cigar box, Bed Pan, Lunch Box, Candy Tin, Custom build, et al). I think the site is more about creativity than cigar boxes. Keep those unique builds coming."
