This piece was inspired by Broda. He posted one a few weeks ago. I am going to send mine to my niece. The handles are maple and the top is Bubinga. A very fun project.

Great execution! I’ll be making some of these for sure. Is there a hole in the top’s shaft, or how do you start the string?

Yes, there is a hole in the top shaft. Here is a link to the one Broda made that I modeled mine after.

Very nice top. Hope you don’t wear it out before you send it to your niece. She will love it.
