    I see nothing wrong in "that thread", sometimes I even have a joke about my last name but it is just me.
    If in one day I will be some sort of luthiers and making stuff, maybe not just ukuleles, I will be very glad to have my name appeared in any category. Which means I must have done something right(or wrong) to get it famous.
    It seems to me that competition create a lot of pressure in the crafting world.

    BTW thanks to the OP for this thread, I have regular PMs with mmStan, it is always joyful to talk with him about everything. Strange enough that I haven't had a chance to meet him in real life, but his kindness and aloha spirit really connect to many friends around the world.

    I think the original thread was fine, TBH - because it was posted without any malice or ill intent.

    I have been wondering myself recently about how I could get into the world of 'custom' ukes on the cheap - indeed, does such a thing exist?

    I think I've found one avenue, that being Bruko, but I think Stan's thread would perhaps have broadened out over time into a thread where newbies like me could have asked if other similar 'budget' custom/low volume makers were around.....

    Anyway - I think even a newbie like me can see Stan acted he always does - with the utmost aloha spirit.

    Now all I have to do is fast forward 12 years till I retire so I can finally get to the islands and fulfill a dream to catch a real wave........

    Totally with you, Daniel, this one is not about taking sides since the alleged "opponents" are already perfectly reconciled.

    ^ This.
    And whether the blood be highland, lowland or no,
    And whether the skin be black or white as the snow,
    Of kith and of kin we are one, be it right, be it wrong,
    As long as our hearts beat true to the lilt of a song.

    Due to work, I have been little on the forum for a couple of weeks, so I don't really know what's going on here. However, I just take this opportunity to express how much I appreciate Stan's comments on various threads. He also helped me buy a cheap baritone from the States once, selflessly organizing transport and all with another UU member. Kudos to the Mystery Man.
