Continuing from last year’s STEM project, Leezle and I used the remaining neck from the guitar roller coaster project to make a sound projecting instrument. The main requirement was we could only use stuff we already had on hand – nothing could be purchased.
Leezle is passionate about cello, and if I may say so, has become quite accomplished. She wanted to make something resembling a cello or bass.
Alice the pitbull’s favorite toys are buckets. Luckily, there are extra buckets on hand.
Leezle made “F” holes, which ended up being “I” holes.
We used two bolts to make the neck and bridge nuts.
It actually works – the next only has 3 tuning pegs, so it’s a 3 string instrument.
