A DIY Instrument/Instrument related section in the Breakroom?
Is anyone interested in a DIY only for Instrument/Instrument Related posts?

Many members have been experimenting with their own takes on the stringed instruments and accessories, or just refining the current versions, or building their own. These are quite interesting reads.

Would it be worth it to have a section of the Breakroom designated for DIY Instrument/Instrument Accessories in the Breakroom to keep these together? It would be for instrument related. 

Any thoughts? 

If so, would it be a good idea to mobe, ar least, the latest Instrument DIY threads that were started in the Breakroom swction of the Breakroom to the DIY Instrument/Accessories section of the Breakroom, if it is not a lot of work to do so? Not sure if the first post takes all the replies in the move or each reply has ro be moved and attached to the thread. If the latter, that would be too much work.

I thought the "Bowed Instrument Repair, Making and Setup" sub-forum catered for items in this scope, but I guess if we want to widen the field to all stringed instruments (I mess with fretted strings, too...) then it makes sense.

Maybe I am mistaken where I am reading the threads. I thought I was reading them in the Breakroom. I would not be surprised if I was not in the “room” I thought I was in. If there is already a place for it, not necessary. It should be “Bowed”. I keep forgetting there are non-bowed stringed instruments. I am referring to “Bowed Stringed Instruments”. The Breakroom is good for the others, IMO.

Ah, Yes, @Peter Momentary Brain Drain Syndrome. Please ignore my suggestion. They are in the section Peter mentioned. 😁 No need for my suggestion. Thank you, Peter, for pointing that out.
