    Woah, doggies! I agree! And I just had a brain-fart watching that video...off to the drawing board!
    I'm not entirely convinced that it is possible to polish a turd. However, if one were to accomplish that feat one would still have a turd, and one all the more noticeable for being shiny.

    Check out my ukulele-themed "stuff" at http://www.cafepress.com/fivebyfiveukulele - proceeds go to a good cause...UAS treatment!

    Apparently you are supposed to make these without drawings. That would be over-engineering.

    But I suppose you need to bend the spoon just right to hold the string!

    I looked on Youtube and saw one video that said it takes 10 minutes to build one, once you've got all the bits - and I can believe that.... but - really silly question coming up - presumably, you need an amp? In which case, I'll just have to forget it! I would have LOVED making one of those......

    Not at all! You may want to put some type of resonator below the bridge, but it still would work without one.

    There are plenty with paint can resonators and other weird devices. I can see me building a lot of these!
