After researching quite a bit and discussing it with my hubby for a few weeks, we have decided to attempt to make ukuleles. Well, one at first and we will see how it goes. We plan on trying a cigar box ukulele first, and hopefully progress from there. I will be buying the neck, fretboard, bridge, bone nut and saddle from Mainland Ukuleles in the next week or so and I am really excited. I will post updates!

A husband and wife sharing the shop? Oh my!;). I'm just trying to be funny of course. Good luck on your adventure. Just like Ruffles, you can never stop at just one.

Good luck! My wife want me to teach her how to inlay. I'm kind of on the fence on that one. I know she has the skill, but we don't always agree on artistic value.

I found 2 cigar boxes to play around with. They are kind of girlie so I am really excited about that. I am obsessed with purple and I happened to find one purple and one pink. I got them both for only $5 total. I can't wait to begin!

Here are the cigar boxes I have so far. I am excited though, because my dad told me he has tons of cigar boxes he was going to sell in a garage sale. I can't wait to see them. I will post pics when I get them but for now I have these
