    Dug around in the scrap pile for some Oak and cobbled this together.

    That's great Dan! I thought I was the only one that used one of those. Well, mine is a cheap metal thingy I've had for 20+ years.

    I might have to copy that. Looks good and sturdy to boot!

    That's a cute little guy. Thinking how to add some noise and make it a stomp box too.

    Very nice, Dan. I've not used one of those since the one semester in college when I played classical guitar, but mine was not nearly as nice.

    That's what got me using one, but once I did, when I'm sitting at my little workstation, I need to have my right leg propped up.

    Very nicely done Dan!
