    The motor on my Craftsman table saw (1967) died. I remember when motors were cheap. I'd pay more for a new motor (or the repair) than I paid for the saw.
    Too many ukes, but I can't stop buying!

    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.

    A morning of turning a slab of American Sycamore into the body pieces for a baritone ukulele. The sides I could resaw on my old band saw, but the top and back plates had to be done the old fashioned way. The photos just don't do this wood justice; the grain figure is striking. They still need to be thinned somewhat before they can be used in the body, but today I wanted to get the hardest parts out of the way. I still have a sizeable piece of the Sycamore slab left over, to be used in a future project.

    Hope you had a sharp saw. It sure makes you appreciate power tools.

    Finished the last task on the disc sander build. A couple coats of wipe on poly and built the sliding table for creating the neck to body joint.

    I found Sinker Mahogany is a bit like Balsa wood with a woolly feel while working with it
    ..its brittle and you have to be careful with it on the bandsaw when it is in thin plate form...but it makes a great tone wood...It reminds me of some ukes I made some years ago with some timber I was gifted from Pete Howlett we ended up calling it Helium Mahogany because it was so lightweight
