Looks like it’s initially been roughed out by freehand routing, then left.

I'm now inspired to try out my (non-existent) woodworking skills and make a new creation!

There is a demented charm to these which I quite like. They’re like something out of one of Jim Moir’s (Vic Reeves) paintings 😂

300 quid, you say?

If this is a child who is 14 or 15...then fair play to him. Yes, they do look a little 'heath robinson', but there's absolutely no way I could have pulled off what he's done when I was his age. Could be the starting point of making some masterpieces in future 👍.

I'd certainly never have a go at him for making and playing them, but I would politely suggest that maybe he's not really ready to be offering his building skills as a service just yet. Could also be fraught if he's too young to enter into a contract with prospective customers, too.

Judging by the look of these, this young builder is perhaps exhibiting the same Dunning-Kruger effect as a certain guitar improver who is not to be named (unless in biro on a headstock) if he thinks these are £300 instruments.
