DISCLAIMER: The Second Tuesday Open Poetry Reading is facilitated by Jim Villani.  I’m just an attendee trying to help get the word out… it is a small group, we need more people. This post has not been “approved” by anyone. Button image below is from YBWorks, my little button biz, and not the name of any local poetry anything. I’m adding it just for grins because if I don’t add a photo in this post, a default image will pop up when shared on social media. Please see the Facebook event page if you need a map or more information.  Thank you!

NEXT READING:  September 8, 2015 (location to be announced)

Thinking

I am still looking at this tin box, with the piece of leather I cut to fit flush set on the bottom, along with a Celtic medallion that would be fun to tool, and thinking, “Why not?”

I was told the leather will kill the sound.

I’m thinking the leather might change the sound, maybe take some of the tinny out of the box.

I do not want to cut the lid or the lip, so a neck would need to ride along inside the bottom, in one side and maybe just butt up to the opposite, so I can screw something on that end to hold some strings. A hole for a jack. Sound holes? Maybe.

IDK… I’m still thinking. It’s been years.
