Actually, I just remembered (and searched to confirm my memory), my bass is `ukulele related. I don't think its ever been stated, but if you've been around here a while, you may figure out the connection with `ukulele.

And you win a prize if you figure it out.

Thanks greenscoe- I wasn't doing this kinda stuff 5 years ago at Gilet Guitars in Sydney Australia. It wasn't until I left the nest that i started to ruffle my own feathers and started peacocking like this hahahha. Just practice your mitering and you'll be able to do the same stuff- its pretty easy really, just time consuming.
Funnily enough, my favorite inlay is Chuck Moore's Peacock headstock- THAT is an amazing work of art.

Chuck Moore - the staff lines are holly veneer, on edge. I made a pattern for the curves, and a router base for the dremmel which had a template follower hanging down. I then cut using the curve pattern with a 1/32 bit. Moved the pattern over in parallel, cut the next staff line, etc.

also you have a video on the semihemispherical fret ends.

Really nice work Beau... The frets are cool too and I have to say I have never played an instrument with a fretboard like that. Might take some getting used too?

Beau Hannam Ukuleles
11-23-2014, 05:06 PM
the good thing about semihemi..(etc) is you cant feel em. very smooth to play on but it doubles or even triples the time to properly prepare a fretboard.

I was going to do a video but then didn't. Next uke (in a few weeks) ill be sure to do a vid-

I don't know whether these beautiful works of art give me inspiration, or make me want to just give up! To bring things down to an amateur level, here is my offering of a favorite of mine. It was built from a kit from Musicmakers in Stillwater MN, called a Dakota, designed by Jacob Nelson. The kit was good, if a little on the heavy side. The design on the soundboard is mine, inked to look like woodburning. Unfortunately it doesn't put out much volume, but it has a pick up installed to compensate for that! This was my third build.

Hey all, Iím new to the scene but thought Iíd throw out what I was working onÖ
I just started making ukes this past summer and am loving every minute of it, so when I ran into the opportunity to purchase some black and white ebony lumber, large enough to make ukeís, I bought it up!!! So I decided to start taking pics of my builds and get them out there for people to see as I am having a hard time finding a builder that makes ukes in some of the woods Iím using ( is this good or bad!!!) Anyway, hereís some shots after the box is complete and the binding channel routed! As you will see thereís no rosette! I decided not to use one on this build, I hope it doesnít come back to haunt me!

http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah317/Fahrout/IMG_0721__1417467672_6811817718_zps5f5b5c28.jpg (http://s1383.photobucket.com/user/Fahrout/media/IMG_0721__1417467672_6811817718_zps5f5b5c28.jpg.ht ml)

As you can see, itís coming along nicely, next step is to install the pictured binding that matches the colors VERY nicely, thereís even some of the brown in the B&W that matches.

I used a one piece Sitka top as it matched the color in the ebony very well, and it has engelmann bracing. Iím very pleased with it so far!

Let me know what you guys think!!! Canít wait till I get it done and can post a pic!
Any comments welcome, even the critical!

Very interesting looking to say the least. The build is interesting too using the bicycle inner-tubes. Smart. I'm wondering how the two gourds were attached... I notice what looks like a strap end pin, but the top hasn't been trimmed yet. Maybe that is the end of a rod that holds the two gourds together? I'm always amazed at how ukes lend themselves to such beautiful creativity.

Whoa Nice Dennis...wasnt there another banjo maker there too in NZ?

As far as I know I'm the only bano uke builder. There is a banjo builder, and a few uke builders.

Very interesting looking to say the least. The build is interesting too using the bicycle inner-tubes. Smart. I'm wondering how the two gourds were attached... I notice what looks like a strap end pin, but the top hasn't been trimmed yet. Maybe that is the end of a rod that holds the two gourds together? I'm always amazed at how ukes lend themselves to such beautiful creativity.
There is only half of ONE gourd. This kind of gourd is what we eastern ppl call the typical "gourd shape."
The neck is made of a rosewood branch with bark still on it. Unfortunately it's not wide enough to make a 4-string normal uke. If the other half were to be made, I'll probably use through neck design 'cause the necking box isn't stiff enough.

Thank you for letting us hear how it sounds. I love the idea of using natural shaped material like that. Got me thinking out of the box...

I thought of making mold for gargantua gourd to form two guitar sound boxes without top. Thick-wall gourds can be stiffer than Smallman's box. It'll work somehow I'm sure.

I like the idea of a handmade instrument with a hand written label. Hey, we didn't use CAD/CAM to make the instrument, why use a computer label?... Just love how that rosette lights up Beau. Beautiful.

Notice how nicely the flowers pick up the color of his coat. Cool cats are always sure their uke coordinates nicely with their fur.

Interesting fingering (pawing) for an F chord? What tuning did you use?

Of course. Silly me. The highly under-rated T string opens up so many new musical avenues for the experienced player.
