4 String Cookie Tin "The Uncloudy Day" guitar dobro slide thing

A quick run through of the old Gospel song "The Unclouded Day" played on the four string fretless cookie tin body slide guitar-dobro "thing" I put together in the first two weeks of April 2010. I've seen this song listed as "The Uncloudy Day" and as "The Unclouded Day". Willie Nelson has a great version, and so does Don Henley.
Nothing special, just a simple arrangement to give an example of the 'thing's" tone and versatility

Hey Tony, I did put a couple of screws inside the body where I ran the neck through, I peeled the tin back and used that as a flap to screw to the neck. Because of the small size of these cookie tins I've also started to make the tail longer to give me something to hold while I'm playing it. And yes there is a bridge, I made it from the same piece of wood from which I made the neck. I've posted a few pictures of this "thing" on my page if you want a closer look

Love it .That's a great sound. Did you have to brace the cookie tin much? I could'nt see a bridge, but I'm guessing that there is one.
