    The last of the Waverlystreet banjo ukes

    Hi all, sorry for not having been around here much lately... New hobbies and all that :-). Anyway, 401, 402, and 403 here: ...are probably the last ukuleles (banjo or otherwise) that I'll ever make. It was fun while it lasted, but too much competition...

    My tiny little "sawmill"

    Yes - seems like I read about 600 year old buried elm pipes still in use somewhere or another. The grain isn't straight, but rather takes a woven sort of form which makes it darn near impossible to split. You have to drive the wedge almost all the way through before the halves finally let go of...

    My tiny little "sawmill"

    I don't know if I've shown you all this thing or not (?). It's a jig for squaring up split chunks of firewood so they can then be resawn in a more conventional manner :-) The bar clamp can be moved in and out on the steel angle rails. You make the first cut, then rotate the piece so the...

    A blast from the past :-)

    So an update on this! The dulcimer has been languishing untouched in the basement since the above post. Yesterday, at a family get-together, a cousin said she wanted me to make her a dulcimer. Told her I already had one that she and her boyfriend can use together. And he is an elementary school...

    What's happening in your shed?

    The "shed" is growing! Finally getting around to building the long-planned 7 1/2' x 12' lean-to addition. All the bicycles, lawn care crap, etc., etc. will go in there, freeing up lots of space in the shop :D

    2x4 challenge

    OK, I'm in :D. Haven't built a proper wooden uke for some time now (in favor of banjo ukes), so I'll be a bit rusty... But my assistant Wayne and I have selected a nice piece of wood, and we'll get started before too long here. It's "SPF" with freakishly wide growth rings, but straight as an...
