I can't find much info on these guys on this forum.
At least one is a member here, which is how I found them.
So lets start a thread!

These fellows are in Lawndale and teach/help folks build there own ukuleles.
The web site photos look amazing.
The instrument played by their patrons sound great too.

Looks like a neat enterprise. I didn't see any info where they sell instruments.

Welcome to the Underground, welcome to the Lounge.
Dennis has been around a while, so not sure where this thread is headed.
You're more than welcome to share your builds, questions, etc.
Know that a LOT of what is being asked, statistically has been covered - Search is your friend. finkdaddy is on a mission in that realm since his return. . .

I'm sure if Dennis wanted to engage here, he would. Most of his updates are on Facebook, naturally.

I was hoping some of his students would share their experiences and thoughts on building their own ukuleles.

Hi Enoch! It was nice meeting you over the weekend!

I dont get to UU very often. Facebook really has been where I do most of my posting.
There are a couple of UU members that have built in my shop and Ill try to get them to share something.
I have never really tried much to promote what We do as word of mouth and repeat builders have kept us fairly busy for retired guys. :)

Brothers Ukes is me and my Brother in Law, Ed Heredia.

Since the Los Angeles International Ukulele festival (http://forum.ukuleleunderground.com/showthread.php?126024-2017-Los-Angeles-Int-l-Ukulele-Festival) is a few miles from home we decided to have a booth this year. The Uke festival is really worth going to!
Come on down and we can spend more time. :) ....

P.S. LOL sorry about the sideways pic. It is so much easier on facebook to get it right!

Thanks Kekani for pointing to my hangout! I must say I have spent a lot of time scouring UU for knowledge and have been thankful for all I have learned by being around. I just haven't done much posting but really love this place.
