2009-2010 Projects

Hello, my name is Ben, and I make homemade instruments out of nearly all recycled materials.

This is the workbench in my garage! As you can see, I have collected many cans for future projects. 

I have now made six Can Banjos and one Cigar box Guitar. My first three projects are shown above and below.

This is my first Cigar Box Guitar. It is a six-string with a 22 inch scale length.

This is my 4th banjo, made from an old lunch box engraved "Janice Ludwig."
It is also pictured at the top of this page

A kalimba made from a cigar box and an old rake.

My latest project made for John!
