    Default Hello from South Australia!

    Hello all, I have just started down the slippery slope of building ukuleles and guitars. I have a couple of ukuleles on the go at the moment, one of my daughters plays and has come up with a design she likes and asked me to make it for her. I have been a woodworker for many years but this is a whole new challenge that I am really enjoying. I have made a bending iron using a PID controller, heat rod and aluminium bar. I have created the sides of the ukuleles and added kerfing and I am researching radius dishes at the moment which has bought me to this forum.
    I will post some pics of where I am up to. Cheers Cal

    Hello! I am guessing big bash refers to cricket, if so, I have no idea about sport of any sort
    Thank you Steve!
