Has anyone here ever built a Whamola? I know there was a whamola build thread a while back, I was just curious about problems people has encountered with building theirs or if you have time to share your method of building one. I may post pictures later of the one I have started. I'm not very far in but I will share what I have done.

I have gotten a 7 foot long, 1 inch by 1 inch, square, steel shaft. Then, with a hacksaw, I cut a slot at the top for the wheel to go in.

I am still trying to find my wheel and my finger board wood.

This build is just to try it out, I plan on making another one, with the body completely our of wood, no steel shaft.

Yeah, I guess so... it's pretty much an electric washtub bass
