    It's now the length of a Sopranino. Good job.

    Cut some dowel plugs, glued in holes from geared tuners, sanded, used glue and saw dust to fill any gaps and tuner screw holes, chopped off 45mm, drilled and counter sunk for tiny Waverly friction tuners, all fitted together.

    All clearances and angles seem OK - plays fine.

    Was thinking just some sort of oil - happy for suggestions.
    Id probably use some satin polyurethane spray. It will be less maintenance than an oil. You should probably remove the tuners, and mask the nut, neck, and fretboard. Put on a couple of coats and you wont have to worry about it again.
