    Super old Kamaka

    So an older woman in a ceramics class i'm taking made mention of the fact that her father brought an ukulele home with him after his service during WWII. She brought it in the other day and I was surprised to see that it was a Kamak. One piece top and back. Damage to both. Mismatched violin...

    Nail Polish on a Makala Shark--Can it be done, and any suggestions on design?

    A uke I painted. Just use acrylics. Artist grade if you can (Blick, liquitex, or golden). Sand the body with a 120 and 220 paper first and seal with a varnish after it dries (I haven't got around to that yet)

    giving away a Schoenhut Ukulele

    I could always use another one of those to paint on. Here's a progress photo of the one I am working on now. Far from done, using some of the smallest brushes I have ever seen. I am enjoying it so far though.

    I would like to think he would post some tabs for it. I have only read a little over half of the first book so I didn't expect it at all. There was just a bit of foreshadowing.
