Built my first Diddley Bo on Friday. It has become my NEW favorite musical instrument! Gonna start building more of them, I think. Great way t oget rid of any odd guitar strings you have laying around. :)
Used a sink drain cover for the soundhole. The bridge is a piece of the wooden block that came in the box. Have no clue what type of wood it is. Also had to slice a chunk of the dowel off so that it would fit around the drain cover and used a self-tapping screw to keep the dowel from rotating.
