    Next time just let me know - I reckon I could get you a bag of shellac flakes in under a week.

    I came dangerously close to making some progress this weekend!

    Nice one Dennis. I really love it. Everything - the design, the contrasting timbers, the quirks in the soundboard, the shaped soundhole... it's just great.

    Thanks cml, by the third day I was all better. Then last Saturday I did it again, despite very minimal exposure to the glue. On the upside, my mask arrived on Monday. :rolleyes:

    Sorry, I hadn't seen your post. My prototype was just the pickup temporarily glued to a clothes peg. I sanded a bit off the end of the peg to get a better grip on the brace. Now that I know I'm happy...

    Garageband, Music Memos and Auxy. Auxy doesn't really have a ukulele specific purpose, but it's a fun way to make great sounding tunes/backing tracks quickly, and is one of my favourite apps.

    Now I just have to keep refreshing the page until the stock shows up. :)

    Nice work on the sound port. What are you shaping the back radius with? I think last time you made a radius trough?

    I'm pretty sure braguesa put the cavaquino strings on a soprano ukulele?

    "I tried that string change on a cheap ukulele."

    "Soprano ukulele has the same string length, so it's compatible."

    Time to revisit this question.

    I always thought this stuff was an irritant at worst. But last night after inhaling rather a lot of CA fumes, I suffered an unpleasant allergic reaction. Not the...

    Sounds right. Mostly. No doubt my profile was a bit rough. But the left to right radius is set (mainly) by the braces, the top to bottom radius is imparted (mainly) when gluing the back in isn't it?...

    I went back first this time around, and the tension from the curved back wanted to pull the sides out of square in bad places. The most important geometry is the square between the top and...

    Will do, Miguel.

    I've been slack. I needed a bit of time to think about things, read up on things, revisit my motivation. And the tennis has been awesome.

    It's just got a K on the headstock. ;)

    For $120 there's really no need to worry about humidity either. You really should try one, just to put the Caramels into perspective (I have both).

    I'd guess you've never tried the Kaka KUC-MAD? It's a big step up from Caramel and can be found for well under $150.

    I removed the clip as part of an effort to find out how it worked, so didn't document it well. The cable is just pressed into the soft rubber of the clip and the microphone sits inside its own shell....

    The clip part of the iRig Acoustic can easily and (fairly) non-destructively be removed from the microphone, which makes it easier place elsewhere. I improved the sound of mine by making a mount that...

    I'm thinking the sand is bound in resin or glue so will be harder than the surrounding wood, and perhaps rather well bonded to it if it was set in place. That makes the job different to the old...
