WANTED: CELLO ...broken, non playable, knackered, bollixed, in bits etc...

Hi,
I'm currently taking a "luthier" class and and our project is making a Mandolin from start to finish.
I thought why not revive an old instrument that could possibly regain a NEW / different voice??

SO......
I wonder if anyone has a cello that you may want to get rid of?
One that is non playable, battered, taking up space etc....?
Just a thought I had when I heard of the project.
I could use the wood to make the back and belly, hence giving life to a dead instrument.

Any feed back would be appreciated
THANK YOU VERY MUCH IN ADVANCE,
Eoin

I would like to sincerely thank Trish and John for letting me have their broken cello.
I will (with the help of the group) reseat the neck, possibly by using a brass screw for strength. This will mean taking off the belly of the cello, and then re-gluing it back after work is done. (this morning May 20th).
This will then be passed on to the Ballymun Youth Orchestra for the kids.

ANY OTHER "ADVERTERS" with a broken, non playable, knackered, bollixed, in bits CELLO, who would like to see new life in their broken instrument, or see it re-used and re-homed..............................................
PLEASE FEEL FREE TO RESPOND TO THIS AD.
Thank you very much in advance,
