    Yesterday I received this beautiful piece of locally harvested American Sycamore from a local sawyer, as well as plans for a Kasha-braced baritone ukulele from Hana Lima ‘Ia in Hawaii. This instrument is going to be built from locally grown and harvested woods: Sycamore for the entire body, Cherry for the neck, and Black Walnut for the bindings, end graft, and peghead veneer. I’m still searching for a suitable locally grown wood for the fretboard and bridge. My first choice would be Persimmon, but I may have to use Hickory if I can’t find the Persimmon.

    New "old" shape. Template and mold based on a photo of an Anahu Flower of Hawaii early soprano.

    If you can believe that moving images and sound, can fly through empty space across the universe and be seen and heard on a box in your living room ?.. then you can believe in anything.

    Thanks, John. Very happy with it. It sounds great with plenty of volume and sustain. Boxing it up today for shipping tomorrow.

    I have 4 more instruments in the works but I am going to finish up a 12" disc sander that I am working on first.

    Funny. I thought this was a question, but I couldn't see what it was referring to. Now I understand. The size of the pegs didn't matter.
    Too many ukes, but I can't stop buying!
