  • i don't understand how this site determines there winners, i was #1 for 26 of the 30 days of this contest. and i didn't win? so does that mean all i need to do is be in first place on the last day of the contest, and i win? if so whats the point of voting all month, just have one day of voting. anyway, THANKS to everybody that did vote for me. and good luck to everybody in the ryobi nation!

  • I hope that you come out on top at the end of the month. I was pulling for you and felt bad when you got bumped at the end. I have been promoting the transformer bed on my facebook page. Good luck to you.

  • Too cool for shoes!

  • To connect the strings to the can, I simply drilled some holes in a scrap piece of oak, ran the strings through the holes (the ferrules o n the end of the strings keep them from pulling through) and then through holes in the can. Make the in the can large to keep the vibrating strings from hitting any metal. You'll know if it is hitting metal because it sounds terrible. I'll try to post more pics if folks are interested.

  • Looks like I can't add more pics. If anyone wants to see more, I can email you separately. Just let me know your address.
