    I usually just use Titebond. I had a Gorilla Glue brand wood glue, but it seemed to alter the color a bit. I haven't tried white glue, but would be a little nervous that it wouldn't set up quite hard...

    I will usually just make a putty by mixing wood glue with sawdust from one of the accent woods I'm using. Then I drill a hole a couple mm deep at each marker position, fill the hole with the putty,...

    That's a beautiful uke. I'm not in the market to buy another right now, but I'm glad to see one out of Russian Olive. I have some RO from a tree that was on my grandfather's cattle ranch that I am...

    If you're concerned about the tip of the screw going all the way through the end block, you could also just cut some length off of the tip of the screw. The screw will have a blunt end, but if you...

    Worn Out Martin Strings

    I recently tried out some Martin M600 fluorocarbon strings on a new ukulele. I noticed that they are getting terribly worn down, particularly at the 2nd and 3rd fret of the A string.

    Congratulations on the new uke. It looks lovely! A slightly out of the box thought for your strap button situation. What if you used a wooden strap button and glued it to the heel. No screws or...

    That looks great! Elegantly simple design. I love the padauk accents. I had a couple pedals that quickly multiplied into about 8 a few years ago. I never got around to building a pedal board though....

    Thank you. The last one is Cherry wood for the body; Maple for the neck; and Walnut for the binding, fretboard, bridge and tuner pegheads. Woodworking has been another hobby for a few years, so I'm...

    Those are definitely some unique instruments. Thanks for sharing. Just a thought... The arrangement of courses appears similar to how a piano is strung. The low notes are single strings, middle range...

    Thank you all. I've thought about attempting a rosette. Just seems a little more daunting than some of the other embellishments without having the dedicated tools for it. I'll have to look into it a...
