    Wait until you see the... ermm, ultra-long-scale solid body "ukulele bass" I'm working on since completing that one!



    I did actually buy that crotch walnut to use in ukulele backs and sides. But once I got it in hand it was pretty clear that the grain was too wild and it would never work for that, so it got sawed thicker and used for a solid body top on this bass. When life gives you lemons...

    Decided to fancify my ganged hacksaw blade slot cutting. 3 of these thin blades are giving me a perfect 1.8mm slot for a Spanish heel neck. No plan, just drew some freehand curves on some scrap wood and pencil ruler and 8mm drill and chisel for the mortice and tenon on the cross piece.
    I'll probably knock up another for saddle slots shortly.

    After working on a guitar project for a while, I've been itching to build another ukulele. it's not like I need any more instruments, but I have a spare tenor ukulele neck, so I'm combining it with some wood I have laying around. Bear Claw Sitka Spruce for the top. Maple for the back. Ash salvaged from an old pallet board for the sides, and yes, I'll be incorporating the nail holes into the design.

    That's how it begins - with spare parts. Gee, I have these two parts, so I might as well start building. I've done the same thing with ukes, and now I have enough parts to build a computer. I love those "spare parts."

    LOL, yep. My stock of spare bicycle parts seems to be growing, too.
