    Craftsman at Lowe's and Ace

    Thread Starter: Ole Anderson

    Anybody else get the tinglies now when walking into Lowe's and seeing row on top of row of red Craftsman tools, chests and equipment?

    Lawn Weeds

    Thread Starter: Prashun Patel

    Guitar Build Number Two

    Guitar building is addictive and very satisfying. I started with a baritone uke just to see if I could do it. It turned out better than I expected and
