Anyone remember me?

Has everyone gone away to somewhere else? Some other community?
I'm still building here and there. You can see some on my tiktok (same name).
Latest is a 2-string, standup, bowed bass shaped like a harpoon for a pirate metal project I'm working on.
Made of a stick of Patagonian cherry with a walnut fretboard, a zero fret, some random brackets, a carriage bolt, bass tuners, sisal rope, an aluminum spike and a modified violin bridge. And it's electric! Flat humbucker pickup installed vertically and it's loud and clean. Intended to be played with a bow BUT it's cool no matter how you play it. And it's like 6 feet tall.
I wanted it to look 'rustic' so I beat the hell out of it with the belt sander and burned a terrible jolly roger on the headstock.
