    Edit: ....or I could jolt head nail it! Lol.
    I'b more reassured if there was No.8 fencing wire incorporated in there somewhere.....
    IGOR, I know it can be done, the question is, should we be the ones doing it?

    Maybe route a little depression along the edge and put a line of fencing wire around the edge?

    Holding it will be a bit of a challenge.

    It was a bit tricky to glue together, it wants to do its own thing but I think Iíve got all the angles covered.

    I keep telling my wife that we can't own too many clamps.

    Hi Benhur,
    Iím currently up in Dongara so Iíll unclamp it when I return home. When I first inspected it I didnít realise the break was between the glue join of two separate pieces of wood. Iím still planning to angle a piece of dowel through the tuner hole to cross the wood join. Once that is done we might discuss future work.

    No worries Mark. Have a good Easter break.
