    Talking My girlfriend's first build

    So today is my birthday and my girlfriend surprised me with a brand new ukulele that she built in secret.
    It is her first ukulele but I was impressed with the detail. The colour is fairly individual.
    The are no marker dots but that's how I like it.

    Although it looks a little over engineered I strongly suspect it won't last very long. But the good news is that it is fully recyclable.

    It has really given me inspiration for a build of my own ☺

    I viewed this post on my phone, so I couldn't really see the thumbnail until I had read the post and then clicked on it. Ha ha! Very clever and funny post. Nice. Definitely made me smile. Now the question becomes whether you can have your uke and eat it too. 😃

    Very cool. Looks like she knows the way to a ukulele player's heart.

    She's very talented. How does it sound?

    On second thought, never mind. I'm not sure I want to know the answer to that.

    Tasted better than it sounded

    I can confirm butter icing and jam is not as strong as Titebond.
    The kids tried to play it and it just went to pieces from there on in.
    Cheers all...

    P. S. She does indeed have a sister but she doesn't like ukuleles much☺

    It's a "keck" (I know, too obscure a reference from "My Big Fat Greek Wedding").
