Lil’ Peppa

This instrument was the direct result of Jen cleaning out the kitchen cupboards. I had just finished up fretting the Maple Syrup Ukulele and she came into the spaceroom asking if I had any use for the pepper can that had been sitting empty in there for about six months. Of course I had to take it, it was just screaming “very little two stringed guitar”. I must say, it was a real pain in the butt getting all those frets on. Many a time was it that Lil’ Peppa almost never saw the light of day.

no sir. I am just using bits of galvanized steel I have lying around. I did just purchase some and I am looking forward to trying it out.

You're a genius. I've recently developed a love for and a participation in the hobby you have perfected. I have made several drums, mostly using cardboard tubes and balloons, then found that glass vases and ceramics work better.

You're a bit of an inspiration. I finished my first stringed instrument on Friday at 3 in the morning, because I looked at it and it looked at me and we decided this dorm was in fact big enough for the both of us, and so I finished the bloody thing. It's pretty much the top half of a guitar, on a slightly smaller scale, and it makes my girlfriend look at me funny.

Having said all that it appears I should get my own blog. I just wanted you to know that your work is inspiring, contagious, and wonderfully odd.

PS: I have three giant eight-foot tall cardboard tubes with a diameter of about four inches that I won't be doing anything with. Unless you want them or someone else sees this and wants them they will be reincarnated after recycling probably as a pencil or vegan food or something.
