Guessing by the two transistors, handful of R's and C's (plus the "fuzz" control) a fuzzface? With trimpots on the collectors?

It's less fun when the first person gets it right. Here are some much delayed build photos

I love the idea of a wooden pedal enclosure, but I've got 2 questions about this...

1) grounding?
2) risk of fire?

looks cool but your soldering leaves much to be desired

I'm not too worried about fire, it's a 9 volt circuit. I doubt it can generate enough heat to ignite. Everything is grounded, it's just not shielded, but any hum in a fuzz face is really just "extra mojo"

I'll be the first to admit, I solder like Nuke Laloosh pitches, kinda all over the place.

Is that avatar a view of your digs?

Looks like you're living in the shadow of the biggest transistor in the world!
