Patrick, I think there would be a market for your hammered can lid resonators.  Your process really improves them.  But I wanted the tomato intact, not in paste.   All done and strung up and it plays pretty good and for some odd reason sounds high and squeaky.

She's gonna be a peach of a tomato git UJ!

Of course I would love to take my hammer to the lid :-) Can't wait to see and hear her all done!

Pretty good, Dano.  I painted the peg head leafy green and will likely add a green fret marker.  The big decision is fretted or unfretted.  I am really fretting about that.

Don't know if it is mighty, Wes.  Will at least be a cute wall hanger.

Cute as a kitten, UJ! Inspired me to some bad poetry this morning...

Tomatoes are red,
That witch is voodoo.
Got you a Swamp Witch?
You'll need a Lil' Red, too

Pretty good and suitable name, guys.

Looks like the Nation had dubbed her "Lil Red".  And I would agree!   Great tomato paint on the rest of the build, too!  Sweet Lil Red.....
