Nice easy build with great result. BTW you can buy piezos already soldered to a jack, so soldering not required, and I guess you could melt a glue stick with a lighter for attachment.

eazy Peazy!! dont know about the theory about the reverberating of the toplid from the box, im remembering building a Dulcimer whit the stick strait on the box , and it reverbarated just fine?

but over all a great  what not to do! video,for all the builders out there that dont own a saw ! but do have a hole load of other tools ! but your end conclusion for the option of having more options is that its a build for loads of other options  ,but looking at you having fun building and making the video , was al the fun for me ! Thanks for that !
