We still need several more participants for Pete Howlett's Extreme Build workshop in Atlanta, in order to make it happen. If you want to build a tenor uke w/Pete's expert oversight (and kit), this is your chance. You'll have a uke 'nearly as good as a Howlett' in 3 days (June 15-17). Don't delay, our window of opportunity will close in a couple weeks.

Pete has more details in his posts:

If interested, please send Pete an email directly at: pete@petehowlettukulele.co.uk

This will be your chance to own a Pete Howlett designed Tenor Koa Uke AND build it yourself!!!

Doc-- A couple of questions: The cost is $775, correct? or something different? Since I will need to fly from TX & stay somewhere while in the Atlanta area, where, exactly, will it be held & are there any not-too-expensive lodgings nearby? I am interested, but need more details. And is there also a photo of one of the finished ukes from the class, so I can see what I'd be building? Thanks!

man I'd love to do this, I'm hoping there isn't a deadline on the payments that I can't make.

While you're in Atlanta, plan a field trip to Kent Everett's shop. World class.

Walter, I sent you an email.

That sounds right from what I have seen. I assume things will firm up shortly after we have enough participants. Please contact Pete for more details and to let him know of your interest in attending.

I cleaned out my mailbox. Sorry, I did not realize it was full.
