That's really cool. Have you tried playing it and seeing what happens?

You seem to have a real flair for handwork/crafts etc. Maybe you could look at doing an evening class in woodwind and brass repair or something?

Hey Rob, Lee's right. Whilst you're out of work at the moment get stuck in and see where this takes you. You've got an interest and a flair for making things. Ultimately it might not turn out to be music-related, but there are opportunities for good craftsmen.

You might not make a fortune but quality of life could be far better.

As you've been made redundant recently get support for the funding and go do some training. Great fun and will keep you busy if nothing else.

That's fantastic!
You've inspired myself and my partner. We're going to visit her family for a long weekend and her dad's a carpenter so we're going to try to make our own too. I'll post with the results when we get back.
