    Interesting . . . I was thinking along the same lines, and also downloaded some Oaktown Strings baritone uke plans. Then I decided to shrink a 1940 Gibson L-00 to 73%. I like that shape better, so...

    The strings came in today . . . that's pretty fast service from Lucy's. Although the strings are still settling a lot, I liked the tone immediately. They seem to drive the Harmony's Mahogany top much...

    Yeah, I forgot to include the bolted mortise and tenon joint in my list above. I haven't seen Heidi's videos, just Robert's description of them. I've also picked up some solid tips from Jay's videos....

    I think anyone with patience and perseverance could tackle those tasks, although not necessarily to a high standard. I added bindings, a bound side port, and a pickup to my first uke, and while there...

    I started with guitar, and still play it regularly, but I go back and forth between guitar and uke. A tenor is as small as I'll go ... even that fretboard is somewhat cramped in the 1-5 frets. On the...

    Well, I've not really cared for the D'Addario rectified black strings, either. They are dark and I don't think bring out the best in the Mahogany top. My next strings on the way are a set of GHS...

    That is a nice looking build. I've looked at those kits, but the cost does seem high to me. I've also considered buying one of their laminated Walnut kits and substituting a nice bear claw Sitka top...
