Yeah, those cracks are serious and would take some time, but I thought of you when I saw it so I thought I would send you the link....even if just for the fun of looking.
I can understand that your heart is set on a Favilla. I made some wall hangers this weekend that turned out GREAT and I hung my Favilla with my KoAloha next to my bed above my bedside table! What is better yet, it was my wife's idea to hang them there! I hung ALL my ukes this weekend and now they are ready to be played at any moment, all I have to do is grab one off the wall! It was fun to make the hangers. Each one cost less than $2.00 in materials. I was thinking of putting together a "How-to" page so others can make them with some basic tools. Do you think people would find that helpful?
Best to you,
