    Yes that's right FDD. Finally Done Day......:p This is my latest popsicle sticks build. Took me for ever to finally get it done. I just couldn't get into it until a few days ago and now I cant leave the shop. 100_0529.JPG 100_0530.JPG 100_0531.JPG 100_0532.JPG 100_0533.JPG

    Now you can get started on the lollipop stick guitar. I was thinking of doing one with matchsticks years ago.

    I have actually made lots of guitars with them but not quite as rewarding as every thing else is. I made the strings out of the copper slot car wrap.

    Thanks everybody, I'm glad you enjoyed them.

    Now that would certainly be a challenge. My grand kids would have a sugar overload if I had to make them eat more popsicles lol....

    Full size. Might take a really long time to sort through and find the ones with the best tone.

    That's such a lame idea. Popsicle/lollipop sticks would be so much more efficient.

    We'd need a jig to achieve something like this

    Put me on a band saw, table saw, lathe, etc. I am comfortable. But carving?!! Man, you are way above my skill level. That thing is awesome! Even the studs on the seats.

    Wow, really nice. You have some serious patience, dexterity, and a steady hand, and of course skill.
