It's possible, Wes.

Changing the subject, temporarily:

If you ever get tired of living where there's NEVER a plowed wall of snow blocking the end of your driveway, why not move to Wisconsin, and run for MAYOR of the city just a few miles from here?

They sorta named it after you, so, "VOTE for a REAL Wes Bender" would make a good campaign slogan.............


It's funny, but a number of people, when they hear my name, think it is West.  I appreciate the suggestion, Mike, but politics is one thing that I would never consider entering.  Now, we better get back to the regular programming before this thread is locked for becoming political.......

This MIGHT get it moved to the [FF] FOOD FORUM.

But,  BACK on the subject of the LUTE:

THe string tension on the tailpiece is deforming the end of the tin.

 Got to install reinforcing blocks, on the side of the dowel stick, I guess.

Action WAAAYYYY too high, so I took off the nut, sawed the slots to BELOW the fingerboard.
Then pulled a fret from the discarded end of the used fingerboard, trimmed it, mixed up epoxy putty, and pushed the fret into the putty to make a ZERO fret

Quick, cheap, and lazy.

Might have a sound file by tomorrow evening.
