As somebody for whom a wheelbarrow is a complex and confusing machine, and who has the tool-using dexterity of a walrus, I really enjoy coming here and looking at the uke-in-progress pictures. And reading the descriptions of how this is all done.

From where I sit, it's like magic. Here is a pile of wood and presto! here is a beautiful musical instrument!

Boggles the mind. Just thought I'd say it: I appreciate those powers and abilities far beyond those of mortal men ...

The only special power you need is patience. That's the hardest skill I ever learned

The magic for me is in the wood itself, how it acts, how it polishes, it's depth, feel, color.

Luthiers prove that opposable thumbs can be used for tasks other than holding sandwiches together. Thanks to each and everyone of them.
