I posted this in the luthier's lounge a couple of days ago but am pleased as punch with it and want as many people to see it as possible. I hope the mods don't mind.

I've been very busy lately building a website and learning photo editing but have somehow found time to complete another resonator uke.

This is a tenor scale resonator uke featuring:

Cone: National
Body woods: Spalted white cedar
Neck: Spanish Cedar
Fretboard: Curly Aust. blackwood
Bindings: Curly Aust. Blackwood
Strings: D'Addario J71s
Finish: Satin lacquer

It looks very nice. I hope you can get some sound samples up soon.

Wow, it's a very nice uke!!! Do you have a sound sample of it? Do you make this model but for slide lap steel playing style? It would be great since I have a lap steel squareneck uke and would like to have a reso lap slide!!!

What a beauty. Are you saving it for yourself or setting it loose on the world? Gorgeous. Quite partial to spalted.

I might be able to afford one of those after that dog of yours has dragged it around the yard for a year or two.
