    Spending a rainy morning in the garage making a building form and spreader bars for my baritone ukulele project. The bandsaw was a Christmas gift from my wife over 25 years ago, and it still works great. I installed a new blade and retuned it this morning just for this job. Not shown is the oscillating spindle sander I used to true the first piece cut on the bandsaw so it could be used as the master with the router pattern bit.

    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.

    Finished my Kasha baritone building form. It's a slightly upscale version of the one used by Heidi Litke in Robert O'Brien's video tenor uke building course. It allows a Spanish heel build while still using a building form. I've not been clever enough to figure that out for myself.

    That's a beautiful mold. I'm surprised that molds aren't for sale at places like Stew-Mac.
    Too many ukes, but I can't stop buying!

    Thanks. LMII has some ukulele molds, but at $100, I'd rather build my own. My current kiku project is being built on an open form, using blocks at the tail and heel, and 1" dowels bolted into slots at the waist with spreaders inside. I've built two baritone size bodies on this form, and decided I wanted to put in the extra effort to make a full mold for the next project. Here's a comparison between the two building forms:

    Do you have a photo of a build in the mold with neck attached? I'm not clear no how this allows you to build with a Spanish heel. Only thing I can figure is you must raise the body high enough in the mold so that the back of the neck clears the top of the mold. (Maybe I just answered my own question?)

    That is true. Here's an image of Heidi working on one of her ukes: https://www.redsandsukuleles.com/bi0.html
