    Fungusgeek, its always good to see what others are making: these 3 look great. I'm thinking it would be even better if you were to post a few more photos showing various stages during the builds. Its interesting to see how others set about making their ukes.

    I also think posts may be overlooked in this thread. Why not start a new thread about your builds?

    I'm not sure I would have the follow-through to dedicate a thread to the building process. I do post a certain amount of things to my blog at:
    http://www.jupiteruke.com/blog/ if you would like a bit more discussion.

    It has been extremely wet in the shop with humidity levels at 99%. Time to slow down. So the last couple of days I've been fiddling around with making an end graft to pass the time. Amazing the amount of time one can waste on this fairly straight forward process. I can spend hours going through boxes of scrap selecting a piece of wood that I think will make a match. Today I picked out a piece of cocobolo wood which might go with my Oregon myrtle. An odd choice for sure. I'm a sucker for cocobolo even though the stuff is toxic and turns brown. My thinking is that as it oxidizes over time it will begin to match the brown of the myrtle. Anyway, twiddling my thumbs here in the California wet waiting for the dry.

    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.
