The piano may do for lovesick girls who lace themselves to skeletons, and lunch on chalk, pickles, and slate pencils. But give me the banjo... When you want genuine music - music that will come right home to you like a bad quarter, suffuse your system like strychnine whiskey . . . ramify your whole constitution like the measles, and break out on your hide like the pin-feather pimples on a picked goose - when you want all this, just smash your piano, and invoke the glory-beaming banjo! - Mark Twain, Early Tales and Sketches, Vol 2 (1864-65)

I have repaired breaks like that at least 100 times, and it's always nerve-wracking at the first stringup. Glad it worked!

Yes, way to go, Laura, you've given us woodworking clods some inspiration. :D Thanks in particular for documenting the job with photos. Good to follow along with the break and the steps to fix it. Maybe I'll take a shot at regluing a bridge on a beater I have.

Also, Gumbo deserves points for "Lettuce hope not.", IMO.  :P

ahaha! That's very funny. Totally missed it before  :)

You absolutely should. I mean, it's not rocket science is it?  ;D

As long as there are clamps to fit the work, it's fairly easy.
