My friends daughter has taken to the cello and so I made her one to keep at home for practice instead of lugging one home from school…......I made the body from scrap mahogany salvage from a restaurant and the neck from almond wood which is very common here in Costa Rica….....I also added a pickup for amplification if necessary but actually wasn’t necessary…......I t sounds good and she said “It’s so cool”........

-- Let's see......what can I use this for?

wow! “scrap” ,”salvage” and “very common”. The words seem to be out of place in a paragraph describing this thing of beauty.

That is amazing!! Could you embed the video in a post so we can see it? I click on it and Youtube says the video is private.
