I have a 1935 Dobro (made by Regal) round neck, and I can guarantee that neck started life square. A round neck Dobro has a slim tapered heel, not square like that, and has a a deep vee section. Quite thick. Before going whole hog for spanish style do a mock up of what the action will be like. You may find that you don't have a correctly set neck to give you sufficient break angle over the bridge with low action, or the cone/spider may not allow a low enough saddle height. 5 minutes with a straight edge will tell you what you need to know.
