    Hi Karl,
    I'm happy to give my opinion on how I hear the differences but there are a few conditions attached. The differences I hear on my weird shaped tenors might not apply to regular shaped...

    Hi Jerry,
    I was sceptical but am a convert. In the right space it is like listening to yourself play through headphones.

    Thanks Hollis
    I did post some pictures of my latest batch on Dec 12 & 13. You must have missed them but this post is about new workshop made jigs and tools (in my case a bench top router table) that...
  9. What jig or tool do you wish you had made sooner?

    What jig or tool do you wish you had made sooner? I know it is often hard to interrupt the uke making process to make another jig but the result at least for me is usually an improvement to speed or...

    Hi ksquine,
    The rosettes are what everybody notices first. I make my rosettes at about 10 at a time hoping to get 8 good ones. Making those 10 took about 20 hours I guess (an hour an evening for 3...
