The lap steel that I said I wouldn't sell, I sold it and so I needed something cool to replace it. I built this beast of a very old ironing board (a $10 find) and a Blu-J cigar box from 1910.
The nut and bridge risers are made out of an old yard stick. I made the headstock and fretboard from oak and used another trusty Gretsch pickup to make the thing really sing. I also added mother of pearl fret markers on this one which is the first time I've done that, normally I just burn them in.
