I am currently designing a few cigar box guitars for friends and myself. I want to build my father one, he is not a musician but I know he loves it when I do art. I want to get a hold of a wooden bible, my father is a preacher and I figured I would make a series of cbg’s designed after him. I want to call them The Revelators, like the song “John the Revelator” because my father’s name is John.
For my wife I want to make one that is a dulcimer style or “strumstick” style since she hasn’t played any stringed instruments it might help her get started. I want to get a series with very ornaite designs or accents. She loves elves and fairies so I figured something designed like that.
I am gathering my thoughts on paper first and will then start to apply them to wood. I hope that I can eventually make these things happen. The one for my father will be the easiest does anybody know where I could find a wooden box that looks like a bible?
Well hopefully something will come of these thoughts…..hopefully.
