"Stupid boy Pike!"

But this might end up as such...

IMG 7235

Using this discarded 24.25" neck, threaded steel for a bridge and tacks in the end to secure the strings.

Thinking of manipulating the oblong "mahogany" in the manner of Ben Crowe's BoB1 

Just cos...

Herb

I love the Theorbo Mark, are you going to make one? 

I wouldn’t mind making a normal sized lute one day in the distant future when my skills have developed. Is that something you could teach Mark? 

Herb, although I appreciate the skill and courage to make BoB1, I am not keen on the look of it, it’s not to my taste. I wish you luck if you are attempting something similar, it’s an interesting build. 

Carpe Diem and build your dreams

yep - I'm not sure of the look either but this won't be a serious project...

Off to make a racket in Swindon now...
