...... is a baritone uke.

For those of you that don't follow her, Kathy's website documenting her summer luthier projects is very informative.

She just started so she has not put up regular updates yet. Her intro video is here:

Scroll to the bottom of the page. Enjoy!

I love this gal - she is an honest and humble builder and her documentary evidence is about all an aspiring amateur needs to be fully inspired to have a go.

The only problem is her very 'old' website. I can't access the july update through the link.

And yes, some of us haven't had an irony bypass or humorectomy.

For some reason her July updae is not working anymore for me either. It was working yesterday.
Her website may be old, but it is a weath of information for someone new to this like myself. I just hope it doesn't go down anytime soon.

Got an email from Kathy today asking how to do the dowel bolt method of neck joint. I felt thoroughly humbled since I rate her as one of the most 'honest' amateur luthiers out there. And by that I mean the way she goes about building - she does a pile of research before she starts and is like a sponge when it comes to absorbing and processing information. I asked her to get a move on because we are waiting to see this build. Hopefully she will subscribe and directly post here. but then I am being quite slefish aren't I?
