Progress report for AGP #376, a “Dave Lynas” style 2 String Cheroots Bass/ Cello, Neck & Box Slot “Done & Dusted”, tried to use similar materials to Dave, but most were unavailable in the Land Down Under, not sure exactly what Timber Dave used for the Neck, but I tried to lay my hands on a solid piece of Pine or Poplar for the one piece Neck, but couldn’t, so decided to Laminate one from what I had on hand, which was some recycled Radiata Pine and Forest Red Gum, It was not an easy thing to make without a decent Bandsaw but I managed, and as Murphy’s Law Dictates, while searching for a piece of timber to use for a Fretboard, I found hidden away in a corner, a lovely piece of European Spruce that would have done the job nicely, also only had one Parlour Style 2 Hole Open Gear Tuner on hand, looked hard to find some on Ebay, all that was available was 3L/3R from Gitty, but was reluctant to pay the $27.34+ AUD price tag, and wait 2 weeks plus for delivery, so went with 2 enclosed tuners.
Will start the Wiring and Sound Holes etc., tomorrow, still undecided as whether to Lightly Stain and Coat the Cheap Chinese Ebay Wine Carrying Box, with the same Gloss Wipe On Poly I used on the Neck or not. :-)

"Thanks T-Gripped", took me a while to get around to doing one, it needed a bit a of thought and time, but in the end, was well worth the effort.  :-)

"Thanks Dave & Bones", I too think it looks smooth and beautiful, considering it free recycled timber!  :-)
