3-string punch-box for violist

This one was a gift for a violist.  I 'finished' at 9 PM and it was gifted at 9 AM the next day.


The sound hole is a  "f" hole, the tail suggest the bridge from a string section instrument, the headstock has a scroll profile, and for novelty I used a wine cork for the volume knob.

When I started this one, my band-saw decided it had enough of the old tires and threw them like a horse throws a shoe. I did what I could with my table saw and hand tools, but some bits just work better with a band saw.  3 days later the new tires arrived in the mail and I was back in business.

side note: putting new tires on a bandsaw is an adventure all of its own...
