I was right about something today: this took longer than I expected it to.
And I had the blank for the lower nut shaped and fit some time ago. I cut the 5 understring grooves today, and glued it in place. The upper nut is a re-used fiddle nut, the only decent piece of bone I had in the shop. Need to order more stock.
In spite of it all, I actually rather enjoyed the challenge. How are you going to cut that? Which tools can I use to shape this? A lunch break in the middle of it helped.
I still don't know that the darn thing will work, but I'm that much closer to finding out.
