Some violins finished, so to speak

All stained and lacquered and shined up. It turned out to be a worse mess than I thought it would be.

Looks kinda like a ducky decoy for when you are out hunting in your bathtub.

This thing started out to be a tenor ukulele, but it looked so horrible I decided to use it for scientific experiments. I put a heavy X-bracing and tilted the neck like a violin. Didn't have to go to the trouble of trying to get frets straight and spaced right that way.

That bottom one, could it be a vitar?

The ukulele with the violin's neck
does peak our curiosity, sir.
Do you pluck it, strum it, pick it,
or bow it? What does it sound like?
The Duck Violin might
one day be a star in a child's hands.
Your instrument workshop is
humming with the enthusiasm that
cannot be faked. Good show.
Your self deprecation, of course,
is always appreciated too.
