I love the process of building a CBG and I love the moment when it's finished and I plug it in and....it works! I also appreciate the CBG community and the advice and support I've had over the years....A wonderful hobby/community and one i'm glad I managed to stumble across.....

Micky, I am glad to have you for a CBN friend.    I have enjoyed your builds an photos.   I came to your page today and see you are from the London area and that you are in 34 CBN groups.  Thirty four!

Hey mickey,
On burning in fret marks: I find that burning first allows the oil, then lacquer, to highlight the burn marks, and then the lacquer smooths over and protects the line. I have done it afterward, but it leaves a crusty burnt edge to the lacquer, is less protected, and is a more rustic look. That's OK, if that is what you're looking for...
