Build a unique Canjo Guitar or Diddley Bow Guitar - a small one stringed instrument where the string runs through a tin can. This instrument has a Dulcimer scale and can be used with or without frets ( as a slide guitar). This project is suitable for beginners and a fun guitar for all the family.
Beginners enjoy an introduction to various hand tools and techniques from measuring and marking, cutting using a saw, using a hand plane, gluing, sanding and finishing with beeswax. The project should be completed by the end of the day.
