View Full Version : Uke trough

A few people have inquired about my uke holder that they've seen in my videos. It's a an old aquarium stand lined with carpet. I'll probably add dividers to keep the ukes from bumping against each other. I work from from home so it's very convenient to have a choice of ukes at an arm's length away.

Very cool solution! Better than having a bunch of cases lying around on the tea table. The fluffy carpet is very telling of your personality, if I may permit myself a quick-and-dirty psychoanalysis. Fluffy on the outside, but when people undress you they can see right through. You are a very righteous person and many on UU carry with them a soft-pink fuzzy feeling in their heart, just for you.

P.S. I admire the way you kept the waist-high fridge with cold beer out of the frame in all your pictures.

i'd ask if the carpets match the drapes, but i think we all know the answer to that one already.

Looks like a crib for multiple babies! Cool idea. :D I may have to try something like that, because there are 2-4 ukes on my couch at any given time and I don't have any vertical walls in my room from which to hang stuff. D:

Very cool! I like seeing some your nifty instrument collection. But I have more questions. Is that a didgeridoo? And where do you keep your hats/wigs/etc?

See the amp? It's really a hollowed-out shell of an amp. If you move the screen there's a tap to my favorite beer - Genny Lite!


Put a humidifier in it!!
Then it would smell like wet carpet. I rarely have my ukes in their cases so I really don't see this as any different than if they were sitting on a table or hung on a wall.

LOL. mmmmmmmPuppies.

It is a didgeridoo. A gift from the famous Aboriginie RussBussMate. The wigs are kept in the wig trough.

Just curious why you don't use wall hangers? I'd be really afraid of the ukuleles banging together in that box. Especially with my one year old running around.

No wall space. I'm not too worried that they will bang together. Besides the soprano, they fit snugly. You can shake the box and the ukes stay still. I think they are actually safer in the box than hanging on a wall.

Dude, just wanna say, thats so awesome just to have your pick of whichever uke you want like, RIGHT there. My lil bro had a bearded dragon, it went from a baby to like 20 inches in 3 months. They grow like none other I've ever seen!

My favorite reptile. Never known one to be aggressive. I had one for about 6 years until he died. Very gentile pet.

The only way this would be cooler, is if you converted a vending machine into a uke dispenser...

"Um lets see here..for this song I need a soprano, low g, and ...ah yes, aquilas will work nicely...let's see C6, that's it!"

Of course, you would have to keep a jar of quarters next to it :D

They look like they are riding in a bus (or train), and leaning out the window.
