I am about to purchase a RISA Solid (Stick).
Other than for "size" reasons alone, why would I choose one size over another? Is there any difference in how they “sound”? (As there is with acoustic built Ukuleles)
As far as transport.... they are all tiny and fit in a carry-on.
So if there is...

I have recently received my Ken Timms Soprano Uke.
Wow is it loud!...................almost uncomfortable. It came with Aquilas.
To all you owners of this marvelous instrument, what has been your experience as to the best matching strings? I think I need to make a change.
I am in the elementary phases of my uke building hobby, and have been researching fret crowning devices ad nauseum. There are very few optimally sized fret crowning files for Ukuleles.
Some of you like the Stewmac two sided fret file, while others like the 3 in 1 Gurian style fret file.
Stewmac just released their beautiful new website.
Here is a new item on this site that I have never seen before (from them) , with an accompanying video.
A penny for your thoughts !
Stew-Mac just sent out an e-blast on this.
Can I have some of your thoughts on the usability of this item?
I just came across a ridiculously large amount of olivewood.
Would this be good tone wood?
(for ukes............not for flutes!)
Would it work for soundboard tops?...........for sides and backs?
Or should I rather enter a massive jewelery box or kazoo making hobby?:)
Does anyone know where I can obtain ORIGINAL Martin Style 0 plans for Tenor and/or Soprano.
I am more than happy to pay for them.......................but I would like to have the original U.S. plans (Not the newer Mexico Plans).
Thanks for your help.
I am new to wood working in general, and lutherie in particular. I plan to experiment and practice different finishing techniques on lots of scrap wood that I will purchase tomorrow.
The question............ if I am looking to see a staining effect on mahogany, must I use a solid mahogany...
