    My workshop is busy. I have 5 instruments in various stages of construction: 3 cigar box ukes, a standard baritone uke, and a 23" scale steel string guitar. I have 2 more instruments I want to build when those are finished, then I'm going to step back and work on other things. It will be a very busy summer and autumn.

    One of my projects is a Kamaka-style concert scale cigar box uke from another Davis 1886 box, this one with curly Maple bindings. Here's the Black Cherry and Ovangkol neck blank before and after the rough layout cutting.

    Glued the Rosewood heel cap in place this morning, and spent several hours refining the shape of the heel to make it more streamlined. Much of the rough profiling was with a belt sander, followed by a B&D Mouse sander, followed by hand sanding. A lot of wood was removed after this image was taken.

    Thanks John. Here's a pic from this morning showing the fully carved and sanded neck. This morning I'll be working on a task I find most difficult to get consistent results: fretting. I'm using small fretwire on this project.

    Fun with veneers. Maple and cherry "false" fretboard, and headplate decoration.

    At least that looks like a Ukulele, and not a small 4 string classical guitar.

    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.

    There's a weird optical illusion going on with the fret spacing.

    It is a fun look.
