I while back Matt Clara posted images of some unique f-holes. That inspired me to build this uke. Mahalo Matt!

What a killer uke. It's very awesome... :drool: but why didn't you do the matching headstock? Don't think I'm not gonna do one similar... been on the back burner for a while.

You are the master as far as I'm concerned. When I want to look at good ukes I go to your website. You are getting moore whimsical with the flamingos and now this. I love it!!!!!

I love the..... headstock decal.

Now there's an idea! It's really gold MOP but I get your drift. Thanks!

And thanks to everyone else. I started this uke about 6 months ago then put it aside when I realized I'd have difficulty when installing the neck. (I hate when I do things like that. You work out every little detail in your mind beforehand and then miss the obvious!) Home Depot had this great little flexy/springy wrench for five bucks that was designed specifically for this application.

Aloha Chuck,
nice to see the finished product! I remember just seeing pencil-drawn feet cut out of paper when I was there.
It looks really nice. Funny about the neck attachment, I would think it was the same as a double puka but I guess not.
Oh, Hawaiian Airlines did not offer me the job, but it was also for a lot less $ than I could survive on. I got other irons in the fire though!
Mele Kalikimaka and Haouli Makahiki Hou!

As I recall, your solution in the past has been to add a pickup, so you could go through the end graft...? Would you be so kind as to share a picture of the wrench that gets around this?

A thing of beauty Chuck. You are an artist of form and execution.
We just need to find a group called 'The Toe Jams'..... this would be perfect.

Went to Hawaii when I was seven and got a t-shirt with those same feet. What a great idea.
