    As most of you know I build stuff out of popsicle sticks and it just paid off. I won 500.00 worth of free tools from Home Depot. I am a member of Ryobi Nation tools/woodworking forum and I won a monthly contest and automatically will be put in a contest for 2500,00 worth of tools. I am super jacked right now...

    A gallon about ever 1 1/2 months. I figured I could buy stock myself in the amount of sticks I use on a monthly basis.

    Sweet! I won $500 cash from Old El Paso foods back in 86. It was one of those cardboard boxes in a grocery store you drop a slip of paper in.

    What? I do have to keep saving all these sticks? Whew... I am getting a little tired of a box of cream-cicles every day. ;)

    Congrats. Those pictures of your work had always shown to us your skill is top notch.

    Holy crap!!! You did! And I thought you were joking about making a guitar out of sticks. That is sooo kewl. And a tele is perfect fit for the idea. You gonna post an NGD?

    I would actually call it a FFGD "finally finished guitar day".....:p
    This one was a shot in the dark, just wait until the next one...…:eek:
    The free tools I ordered will be the tools needed to build necks. I'm taking on that adventure next.

    I kind of see the edge. Is there a core board in the sandwich?
