How do I mold resin into a lute? Answered

I've been thinking of making a baliset from Dune (a stringed instrument that involved from the guitar) recently, and in the novel it is made from a resin. Is this possible to do?

Your going to need something to give the resin strength. Usually this would be carbon fibre or glass roving or similar fibres.

The resin referred to in the book is, I think, some kind of tree resin

Sure. Create a mold of the instrument, mainly in sections you can put together, and poor the resin into the mold.
