    What's a "Honeymoon".....Mrs Timbuck said I had one a long time ago.. I can't remember much about it...She described it to me..it all sounded a bit messy and I still can't remember who was there with me.

    Congrats Dave. Have a good honeymoon. Before you put the back on it,the uke reminded me of a 1957 chevy (the fins).

    Thanks again, everybody! Done on schedule:





    I'm guessing I've got perhaps 3 hours in it total

    Plays pretty good, considering! I'm happy with it anyway (but certainly would not hold it out as an example of my building skills ).

    It turns out to be my first uke with a radiused fret board; a year or so ago I did some experimenting with a jig to sand the radius, and did a couple samples in 11" scale for some reason. So rather than make a new one I just grabbed one of those dusty sample pieces and used it. I've been intending to make a rolling mill to curve the wire but haven't gotten around to it yet - on this one I just bent it by hand.

    It will fit in a carry-on bag - that's the important thing!
