Make a musical instrument from junk

This instructional video demonstrates how to make an exciting stringed instrument from simple junk materials. This is one of the projects from Nick Penny's book "Making Musical Instruments from Junk". This musical instrument is called a poptar, because of the unique sound it makes.
