For Christmas, my son bought me something on Kickstarter.com called The Uke Buke. I guess I will be getting a book and some artwork. In it a master luthier teaches an artist how to build a uke and I understand there will be plans in the book. I understand the lady artist did some origional artwork. It might be interesting to check out. He said you could still get in on it until January,7.

Very Cool!

Master Luthier John Weissenrieder and Sarah Greenbaum, a painter from New York/new luthier are creating an illustrated book, and have some outstanding backer levels including original watercolors from the book, ukulele kits, a custom built uke, and even a 2-week course where they teach you how to build your own uke, while you do it.

I'd like to take that course! Unfortunately cost of traveling to Florence and staying there for 2 weeks makes it pretty expensive.
But it would be wonderful. One can dream. I'll buy their book.
