    Quiet, my wife may be reading this.

    Tool acquisition syndrome is a constant struggle. I have invested in better sanders and sanding attachments. I also pulled an old compound mitre saw from where it was gathering dust that made a difference to making segmented section pots for the banjo uke.

    Not pleased with myself right now. I made a mess of the Kasha tenor uke I had been building, trimming too much from the rear of of the treble lower bout when I was tapering the body. I pressed through, gluing it up and adding bindings, but the asymmetry bugs me every time I look at it. I set it aside for a few months while I concentrated on finishing a tenor guitar project, but now I'm faced with scrapping the whole uke project, finishing it and giving it away, or trying to sell it as a second. As I'm not an established name, I doubt #3 would fly. I know I'm capable of much better, and it irks me. Sigh.

    I think we all feel your pain, or have done at some time. Put it away and carry on, it's not worth stressing over. We all make mistakes, the next one will be better.

    I decided to cut my losses and demolish the thing. I retrieved the pickup I had already installed, as well as the heel and tail blocks. I cleared my head after that by cleaning and reorganizing the workshop, throwing away a bunch of stuff that was gathering dust and tidying up for the start of the next project. Time to move on.

    A special request from Mike and Debi for a ukulele in the shape of the Hawaiian honu, or green sea turtle. The neck is a little long (for a green sea turtle) but ok for a tenor uke and putting the googly eyes on the back of the tuners was a silly idea. Just doing a bit of set up on it and waiting for the finish to harden a bit more. I was going to call it a honulele but given there are quite a number of other things called honulele there may be some trade mark issues.20190923_152631.jpg20190923_152625.jpg

    I went a little potty.

    I got my band saw cutting segments for my segmented pots and had a pleasant surprise when I found a pack of rubber bands perfect for clamping the rings together. 3 or 4 rubber bands got them clamped up in no time. Two joins are left unglued so I can band saw out the center of the rings before i glue the rings to each other.
    Before I knew it I had enough sets for 4 pots. I will be adding some extra layers of veneer between some of the rings to give me more contrasting colours.
