I will be posting pics of practice dobro on a triangular aluminum body ( Digeridoo like tube) when I get the pics down to size. This pic is not the entry as it was my first attempt at building an instrument and is a "quiet" practice Dobro made entirely of junk parts 2 years ago. I was trying to lose weight and learn to play the Dobro at the same time so this was made to be mounted on my exercise bike. It now hangs on the wall of my workshop. :lol:

Finally got the pics reduced to 150k. My entry is a Didgeridoo-Bro & Steel built from reclaimed materials. This is a "quiet"practice Dobro with a long hollow body and sounds like a hybrid between a Digeridoo and a Dobro. Construction pics are posted. Total cost was $11.54-- $2 for parts from a thrift store and 9.54 for economy 3-on -plate tuners from Stewmac.

The final pics of the finished product will be posted in the next post because I have hit the limit on pics in this one.

That's a great "reclaimed" project. We'd all love to hear it.
