I'm not promoting this, but apparently it works. :o

I hope he gets to do other things during the work day. Then again maybe I would rather be doing that than sitting in front of a computer all day at work. Maybe I will try to make one of those but I couldn't do the bending over thing for very long.

How often do I think about clamping the uke body with my feet? Not very much. Pretty good idea but not practicable... Doug, I think after doing that for a couple months for 12 hours a day you would yearn to be back in front of the computer. The ukulele sweatshop is probably not a great place to work. Ukulele sweat shops. Like what happens at Ken's work shop. Day and night the man turns out fabulous ukuleles until he is ready to drop with fatigue. Hands sanded raw. Barely time for a cup of tea. I salute you uke sweat shop workers!
