"I'm wondering what happened with this cello?
my first advise would be to attempt salvage of it, and play it, but if it is determined to be beyond repair, it should make a nice start for some sort of home-built fiddle!
"OK, I'll try and get the pix to show correctly.

hey there i just stopped by ta say yep the headstock on that 4 string lap steel i built is really simple. i used the blocks from the inside of a cigar box.these blocks that come in a cigar box is the same size as a cigar and are used in packaging the cigars to make the count in the box come out correctly. for example if you have a box of 25 cigars and you stack them in 2 rows and the top row has a space in it---you put the block in the row under it so that the top row is full.any how i used 2 blocks cut one in half for the sides where the tuners mount and screwed the 4 pieces together to make a square then screwed the square to the level. easy to do. thanks for the comment.
thanks for the friend invite, which I am delighted to accept, and thankyou very much for your welcomed comments about my builds. I do admit to liking long and thin. This has probably been because of the types of boxed and materials that I have come across. I'm really happy that some people seem to like my 'creations'.
