CRAFT and MAKE pals Jessica Wilson and J. Stevens have worked up this cute “canjo” made from a tuna can:

The Tune-a-Fish Special

25 inches (63.5 cm) long with a 4 inch (10 cm) diameter can. This simple, two-string, fretless Canjo is handmade from recycled materials and includes a glass slide and a plastic pick. The Tune-a-fish Special is a real working instrument, easy and fun to play even for the novice. The two strings tuned to G and D produce a swell sittin-on-the-front-porch twang on the bottom of the empty tunafish can.
