It's cheaper to pay for the class yourself.

But then who would bring the camera and take pictures?

It's cheaper to buy Mike DaSilva and Kodak than to get married.

Yeah, I guess you're right... It's high time we outsource marriage to India. Even with my budget, I could probably afford a couple wives then.

Question for you - What kind of uke are you building?
More important question for your wife - Do you have a sister who is single? :D

She just gave me the certificate Wednesday night and I'm still a little shocked. She says it was VERY expensive and I think it isn't completely paid for yet. I'm extremely busy with work and soccer just started (I'm a coach), so I probably won't be able to get started on this till maybe October. I do plan on meeting with Mike soon so we can talk about what's involved and maybe share some ideas (I have none!). I've been looking on his site to see some of his builds and get an idea of what I want. I'll keep you all posted and will post pics when I get started. I'm totally new to this so I don't even know where to begin.

Thanks to everyone for all the b-day wishes. I'm a little bumbed tho. First of all we have to finish paying for this apprenticeship (BIG MONEY), and money's kinda tight right now. I wish I could get started on this already. It's a great gift, and I really appreciate it. I just hate having to wait. I feel like a kid. Oh well, I'll keep you guys posted whenever I get started.

dat is totally cool!

I live/work near Mike DaSilva's workshop and have dreamed of building my own uke with him - never could afford that though, and with a 2 year toddler I don't think I could realistically find the time either...

Let us know how it goes - would totally love to hear your experience.

Do you already have woodworking skills?

I have no skills AT ALL. Is that going to be a problem??? Never done anything like this before. In fact, I've only been playing the uke for about 6 months.

Shouldn't be a problem. Not to worry.
I'm really interested though, to hear about the experience from someone who is NOT a skilled woodworker.

Woohoo!!!!!!
