The Wawel


Etsy Featured Item
This "Finest Quality Wawel Chocolates" box came from the Goodwill Store. The neck is shaped from red oak and stained to match the color of the box. I shaped the headstock in an attempt the reflect the little gold decorations on the corners of the chocolate box. The fingerboard, tailpiece, bridge and nut are all made from a natural color oak. The fingerboard was notched out at fret positions and the notches were filled with a contrasting color of wood filler. Brass screws not only hold the fingerboard in place, but also mark the key fret locations. The bridge is mounted on a pair of bolts and its height is adjustable. As it is, the action is low enough that it can be played with a slide or as fretless guitar. Several coats of lacquer were applied to the box and neck, and it looks pretty good,
