    I really love your work and am thinking of trying something like this myself.
    Previously I have just used the hollowing out a solid block of wood and my own invention band sawn bowl uke techniques https://www.instructables.com/id/Ban...-Bowl-Ukulele/
    How do you form your staves?
    What kind of mold do you use (if any).
    My friends call me Titch. I have been known to clown.
    Ian Titulaer is my normie name.
