    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.

    I have started my first ukulele restoration project. Unfortunately I am restoring a mahogany Type 0 style I made about 30 months ago. A crack appeared in the upper bout due to neck tension and an unrelated crack opened up in the back because I thinned it too much. Both beginners errors but I thought it would be fun to pick up some restoration experience on a uke that isn't ancient and precious.
    So the back has come off and I am gluing in various patches to sort the cracks in the bout and the back. I might reset the neck too. All good fun

    I just got an inquiry for building a “ukulele tuned in fifths”, essentially a mandolin but with nylon strings. Several years ago Aquila came out with Nylegut strings for fifths tuning and it inspired me to build a few “mandos” using the strings (below is one example). This can be done with a standard size soprano uke, but I made mine with a mandolin size body. The sound is more subdued than the steel string version with a nice warm tone.
