    Cool How do you humidify?

    What method are you currently using to humidify your uke if any? What is best? I live in San Diego...is it necessary here?

    Cool

    I have a book case with doors on it. I was thinking of converting it to a uke storage cabinet. It might be a fun project? There is not much information about this sort of idea on the net? Here is an interesting article on humidity for ukes etc...

    Check it out:

    Technically cold air does not hold moisture like warm air. In many cases, cold areas can be a big problem for wood instruments.

    "Macguyver Uke Cases".....sounds like a business name to me..hahah. Actually, I was telling Nuker that I have a book case cabinet that I might convert and make weather tight and create uke holders inside so I can regulate the humidity. I get sick of always having to open the hard case for each uke...it would just be more convenient this way too....

    You ever heard of anything like this?
