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.
