So this weekend I built number two - a diddley bow made from a broom handle and a Henri Wintermans box.  The box cracked when I was putting a sound hole in but I think it improved the look of a pretty boring box.  I stuck a piezo in there and strung up with a low E.

Looks great Les!

Job well done, Les. This is a good-looking diddley bow, and I appreciate the crack; it adds the sort of character that makes handmade musical instruments so appealing.
