    Here's a guy on Lanzarote who shows lots of different techniques in playing one long piece on the Timple:

    I thought the way he cut the soundhole was terrifying. What steady hands he has. I guess we really don't need those expensive woodworking planes. That's good since I don't have expensive ones. How thick are the sides on a timple? He didn't use heat to bend them unless I missed it. Excellent skills and fun to watch.

    Those sides were very paper thin ..so thin he trims them with scissors..I noticed he wets the wood prior to bending and the waist radius is not very tight.

    If you can believe that moving images and sound, can fly through empty space across the universe and be seen and heard on a box in your living room ?.. then you can believe in anything.

    Thanks for posting-its interesting to see/hear this arrangement featuring the timple.

    I meet a few friends on Friday evenings to sing and play songs on our ukes. We've just started to play this song, strumming of course so not in the same league as this guy.

    For builders out there... I found the three build videos to be very cool. Also, the talent the builder has, with basic tools is crazy. Could a tenor Uke apply be built using a think body/bowl back like show. I’d bet it would resonate like crazy!

    THere are two things that intrigue me
    1- What glue is he using?- Could it be casien glue?
    and
    2 What on earth was he doing to clamp his bridge down/ in place while the glue dried?
