    It was made as a wedding gift, hopefully they won't fight over it!

    Thanks all, your kind posts mean a lot to me. I might have re-recorded it if it wasn't for my girl doing the heartshape with her fingers - I couldn't count on her doing that again.

    And don't worry. Any year now I'll master the camera and microphone in the computer, and my vids will maybe say something about the actual sound of the ukes.

    Again, thanks. / Sven

    Great job on the uke Sven. Very nice design.
    And the vid was perfect with your little girl doing the heart shape thing. Looked very spontaneous and precious (if a guy can use that word in this crowd).

    Thanks fahrner! I've heard a lot of ukers use the word precious, but in a slightly creepy way, as in Mmy precioussssss......

    Last night both Jukka and Aya turned up for an open stage, left a vintage Gibson and a G-string at the table and took turns to perform on the ash uke. And they told the crowd what it was and that I built it. Man, I was chuffed! My friends will drag their girlfriends to church...
