Some time ago, LukieB sent me a Sargent #422. The base has been cut from 22” down to 18”. The frog was broke, it was missing most other major parts so it sat on my bench for a long time. I wasn’t sure what I was going to to with it, then this idea stuck me.
The infill is made from blood wood, the accent is cherry. Its epoxied to the base.
The knurled knob is made from 3/4” copper pipe with a 1/4” x 20- bolt and bloodwood epoxied into it. I used a file to cut the grooves.
The finish is Brush Oil.
There are more pictures on my blog.
