...for BaronK. Baron / Robin is a friend and lives really close to me. I'm very eager to give it to him, just need the oil finish to cure. If you want you can check my blog out, www.argapa.blogspot.com

I show the uke on YT here (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j97zFtmMLB4).

All the best / Sven

Thanks guys! I just watched the vid again and realized that my daughter totally steals the show...

Not a good idea to have her in it, but the alternative was to have her standing behind the computer next to the microphone stand, screaming.

I love that little girl of yours.

Little ones grow up fast, treasure every moment.

I like your soprano, and your starlet. Post more soon.

Thanks guys, I really appreciate your kind words. I have a few more on (and under) the bench, so more is likely to follow.

This is the 6th finished sop, but labeled as no. 8 since 6 and 7 aren't done yet. I've also made 3 tenors and am working on number 4.

I felt for a while that I had most of it down but I seem to have a talent for making up strange mishaps and time-consuming accidents. But it's not too bad - I build these in my appartment on late nights after my day job so it's far from a professional setup. And I keep them simple; no binding or complicated stuff.

There is another better demo of one of my ukes HERE (http://www.youtube.com/user/washedupsk8#p/u/4/KYJeJO-SHNs)

Hard to believe it's only #6! Very nice. The cherry one I saw on youtube is absolutely gorgeous.

Can you make a DVD of your daughter making faces at the camera?

Wait, was that video about the uke or your daughter?

The uke looks great though!
