I accidentally wrote Thursday on this piece. I got confused because we were leaving town for the weekend and my summer brain was convinced it was Thursday. You can't tell in the picture but the dark rectangle on the left side of the block is part of a piece I left out in the rain that was on plywood and peeled apart. I glued it right to this block and it was the exact size. I like that the black screws on the back look like eyes and the knot looks like a mouth.

A few years ago my friend Monica posted this video on my Facebook page and said she thought I might like it. Since then I've been rolling around the idea of building an instrument for Mr. Flemons. I finished it this week and will be sending it to him soon. Though it's technically not a diddley bow because it has two strings I really want to call it a diddley globe. Thanks to John Davis for hooking me up with some strings when I ran out.
