Build an Electric Broomstick Diddley Bow - by Scrap Wood City

The crazy fellow known as Scrap Wood City is back with another junk instrument tutorial.  This time, he's showing you how to make a well-playing diddley bow from a broom handle.

We're not sure which is more intriguing, his video editing or his cool hand tool techniques!  

The video features the entire project, step by step without any words.  It's easy to follow along and should provide excellent inspiration for those of us who build without exact plans.  Be sure to scroll down for a link to detailed notes and even more pics.

See more photos and get all the full building notes here.
