View Full Version : First Non-kit build

Built and modified a couple Grizzly kits. This is my first by scratch. Laminate of two layers of mahogany and topped with walnut. Finished with lacquer. Just looking for some advice for the next one.

My advice is to give up building ukuleles.

In fact please package the offending uke and post to me so I can dispose of it correctly. I'll PM my postal address to you.

All jokes aside, what a beautiful looking instrument, especially for your first. The workmanship looks top notch, and the timber is stunning.

Any chance of a sound clip?

Thanks. I don't play, just trying to learn the art to build my daughter a guitar. But I will have her play a little something on it and post it. Your response was great. I enjoy people with a sense of humor. Wife and daughter both laughed also.
