You will need to cut a hole in your wood, using your ziplock container to measure.Then start screwing your screw eyes on on each side of your hole for your strings. Your screw eyes need to be at least 1 inch apart.

Tie strings on to your screw eyes and tie them really tight! Then you need to make sure they stay while you are playing them. You will cut 6 pieces of fishline at least 1ʻand6ʻʻ long
