    • This is so very impressive! And beautiful!
      By RYOBI NATION, on September 27, 2018
      • Thank you so much, I really appreciate your comment. This is what keeps me going....
        By Siclestix, on September 27, 2018

    • I think this is my favorite of the ones you've posted,  but all of them are really cool. 
      By cvfraser, on October 1, 2018
      • Thank you very much. I honestly don't care for this one that much.

    • So cool! What are the dimensions? It looks very intricate, great work!
      By RYOBI Nation, on October 1, 2018
      • Thank you very much. It is about 6 inches long so that kind of gives you a idea of scale.

    • Thank you. I've always thought that a bird house should be something that would be your first build with your father or grandfather. This is my first I have ever built and was enjoyable.

    • Love it! Is this your first grandfather clock project, @Siclestix?
      By RYOBI Nation, on October 24, 2018

    • Yes this is my first and hopefully not my last but certainly room for improvements...

      • Thank you very much. This one was a fun one.
        By Siclestix, on October 26, 2018

    • Do you work off of a plan or design them yourself?  These are so cool.

      By RYOBI Nation, on October 26, 2018

    • Thank you. She will love it I'm sure. I would say she has close to 50 different squirrel figures.

    • Those are very fine details! Did you use a scroll saw on this project?
      By RYOBI Nation, on October 29, 2018

    • Yes I did, I decided to take a break from the sticks and play with my scroll saw for awhile...

    • Great solution for clamp storage! Did you repurpose parts of something else or build this from scratch? Thanks for sharing!
      By RYOBI Nation, on November 14, 2018

    • The scrap wood is from a set of old TV Trays I took apart a while back and decided to take advantage of both worlds. I lowered the scrap wood pile and the clamps aren't just sitting on the floor in the way. Worked out perfectly...

      By Siclestix, on November 29, 2018

    • I love this one too, do you build from a kit or make your own designs?
      By B_Holton, on November 29, 2018
      • Totally from scratch, however I study each one a bit on the web but pretty much each piece is trial and error and trust me, more error than trial.
        By Siclestix, on November 29, 2018 (edited)

    • Amazing and beautiful! 
      By jweby2975, on November 30, 2018
      • Thank you, I appreciate it..
        By Siclestix, on November 30, 2018

    • Awesome train. Great job on all of the detail work. That’s takes some skill.

    • Looks incredible! We can see how this project took a lot of skill and detail work. What part of the process did you find the most challenging? 
      By RYOBI Nation, on November 29, 2018

    • The wheels are pretty much the most challenging as you can see there are several mistakes but I tried turning them on my lathe but that failed miserably. I have a idea to make them come out better..
      By Siclestix, on November 29, 2018

    • That's so amazing, well done
      By B_Holton, on November 29, 2018
      • Thank you....
        By Siclestix, on December 2, 2018

    • this is fantastic!  I love it.  How's the tone? sustain?
      By cvfraser, on December 6, 2018

    • Not sure on the tone as of yet but the sustain is pretty awesome. I still have to order some parts. She was a tough but fun build regardless. Thank you.
      By Siclestix, on December 6, 2018 (edited)

    • WOW! This is incredible! What part of this process did you find the most difficult? 
      By RYOBI Nation, on December 7, 2018
      • If this double post's I apologize. Gluing is the most difficult because I can only glue up two sets of 50 each day. 24 hour glue set at least. There are 36 sets in the guitar body. Anything more than 50 sticks I cant run though my planer/jointer.

    • This one looks very advanced. What was the most difficult part of this build? The details are incredible. Great job!
      By RYOBI Nation, on December 10, 2018

    • Thank you. The most difficult is probably the exhaust. It never comes out like I want it to. This was one of those projects that I only worked on when I didn't have anything else to build so it was sitting around waiting to be finished for a couple of months.
      By Siclestix, on December 10, 2018

    • This is amazing! Excellent craftsmanship. 
      By DFDesign, on December 11, 2018

    • That is so fun! How did you create the checked pattern on top?
      By RYOBI Nation, on December 26, 2018

    • I actually learned how to do this when I was in Shop in high school. It is very simple to do but can be difficult to line up the strips of wood. I cut strips about 10 inches long and glued them in a dark light pattern and then cut them in strips again in the opposite direction then shifted them one block every other strip. It saves trying to glue each and every block together in which I believe would be a nightmare....
      By Siclestix, on December 26, 2018

    • I love when you upload new projects.  They always blow my mind.  This is awesome!

    • Love the guitar it’s beautiful
      By Klomp16729, on January 11, 2019
      • Thank you Klomp. I have built several parts guitars and only two popsicle stick guitars and as of right now I have 17. This newest popsicle stick guitar is by far the best sounding and playing guitar I own. I love it.
        By Siclestix, on January 11, 2019 (edited)
      • Well it looks amazing and you have definitely got talent with popsicle sticks lol
        By Klomp16729, on January 11, 2019

      • I'm retired so I would go crazy if I just sat around in my chair all day long and wasted life away. I am in my shop from sun up to sun down but I love every second of it...
        By Siclestix, on January 13, 2019

    • Awesome job.  I can't even imagine the glue time.  This is amazing. 
      By Robzbrz1992, on January 13, 2019
      • Thank you Rob. It definitely is a long drawn out process because there is so many sets I have to glue up.
        By Siclestix, on January 13, 2019

    • Excellent!  I really love it.  Great inspiration to start an electric guitar build.  Thanks for submitting it.
      By cvfraser, on January 15, 2019
      • My pleasure cvfraser and I am glad you enjoy it. Makes me want to start another one. NO WAIT, I did.... lol
        By Siclestix, on January 15, 2019

    • Just when we think we have seen it all, @Siclestix, you post a 2,400 stick guitar! We couldn't have imagined. Thank you so much for sharing your fun and super creative projects with us. You're top notch!
      By RYOBI Nation, on January 15, 2019
      • Wow, what a awesome compliment, thank you very much. It is my pleasure to show my work here on Ryobi Nation. I love searching and seeing all the projects from every body here.
        By Siclestix, on January 16, 2019

    • I have been scrolling through projects for the last couple of days. All of your guitars are amazingly beautiful!
      And every time I eat a popsicle, I will think about your guitars!
      By Anymouse, on June 26, 2019
      • I really appreciate that, thank you for the kind words. I have one I am building right now that is going to take a month or two but with any luck it will be my best one. I will definitely post it when its finished.

      By RYOBI Nation, on January 15, 2019
      • Thank you. It was a fun one but didn't waste no time on it so there are mistakes but not to concerned about it on this one. I always have 2 or 3 projects going on at once so I can usually have one finish a few days apart.
        By Siclestix, on January 15, 2019

    • This is some AWESOME workmanship.
      By JohnCassell, on January 17, 2019
      • Thanks John. A bit tough but not terrible. Several mistakes but It was a hurry up project while waiting for more important ones to dry in the glue presses.

    • These guitars keep blowing me away.  They come out so good.  I bet they sound as good as they look.  
      By Robzbrz1992, on February 6, 2019
      • Thank you Rob. I have 16 guitars in several different styles and believe it or not the popsicle stick guitar's are my favorite guitars. They sound fantastic and the sustain "the length the note rings out" is by are the best. I am more than happy with them and each one I build seems the quality gets better.

      By james_harris86, on March 23, 2019

        By Siclestix, on March 23, 2019
      • I think it’s a neat idea to use an unconventional amp like a Micro Cube to place it in an enclosure like that. Very neat idea!

    • That is a wonderful peace you made. I do have a question though. Is there a link or plans that I can purchase to make a guitar like that? My son just deployed to Afghanistan and he's a  guitar player. I would love to have something like that waiting for him when he gets back. Thanks in advance.
