With great insights from folks on this board, I finished this padauk and canarywood CBG. The box is joined with dovetails, the neck/headstock with a scarf joint, and the neck is built with maple and walnut. Aside from the fantastic fretboard from CB Gitty, the whole thing is made entirely with hand tools (well, I did use a drill for some holes here and there). Fun project to put my novice skills to the test.

Thanks, Glenn!

Thanks, all. Shoot, Uncle John, I'm not sure what's up. It does seem to ask me to 'Run Adobe Flash' when I try to play it. My earlier videos didn't require that, so I'm not sure why these recent ones are doing that. I'll see if I can somehow upload something different.

Glad it turned out good.  I seem to not have the right player to view it.

Well, that seems to pass muster with flying colours, excellent job....!!!

Sounds great. I like that stubby headstock.
