    Sometimes the customer says I want what you just made. Sometimes I ask what they really want.
    Sometimes nothing else matters.20210406_205258.jpg

    Recycled meranti body painted matt black.
    Spotted gum fretboard and tassie oak neck stained with vinegar and steel wool. Next time I do a black body I will go the same way as the neck. Fret dots in kitchen leftover abalone. Cheap Chinese electrics and hardware.
    Control panel and covers from an old polka LP. Logo is clients initials fed into online Metallica name logo generator cut and engraved in and back filled with a white timber filler.
    My friends call me Titch. I have been known to clown.
    Ian Titulaer is my normie name.

    I just finished a 14 month build of a 23" scale small body 6-string guitar. Old growth Red Spruce and old growth Honduran Mahogany, both of which were harvested over 30 years ago and allowed to season all that time. I'm very pleased with the tone, both acoustic and on the amp. I currently have a partially completed tenor uke on the bench. For it I'm using spares and scrap wood I have laying around the shop. It's purpose is to have a uke I can hang on the wall and grab when inspiration strikes. I gave my best tenor uke to a niece as a Christmas gift. I love building these things, and have given a couple away to relatives for birthday & Christmas.

    Uke-PXL_20210407_232907441.jpgYa'll make me look like an amateur, which I am. Here's my first attempt at inlay on my current build of American cherry and black walnut with a sitka spruce top. Spanish cedar and walnut neck.

    Here is an odd ball one from me ..a mahogany uke with a spruce top ? It should look pretty if I put some black bindings on it.

    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.
