Why not assemble and finish your own instrument?
They now have wipe on finishes too!
Got a corner you could set up one of those 30 inch by 6 foot long tables?
Got a workbench already?
There's your distraction. There's your dopamine.
Now, all you have to figure out what to do while you're waiting for the glue to dry.
You could start out with a ukelele and see if it appeals to you.
If it's not for you, you can give the kit to a grandchild or nephew?
