Welcome Al...I just joined the Ohio group yesterday. You do some really nice work. I especially like the Brass Lass. Is that hinge you used for a tailpiece just a stock home depot/lowes type item? I noticed you're a big fan of the "Dulci" fretting. That's what I'm currently working on.

Hi Al,
Well, when i made the uke i didn't have a taperer so i tapered them as best i could by hand. I have in the mean time bought a taperer and will redo these pegs to give them a better fit. They are quite thin and i had used old bobbins. The wood of these was quite dry but if you were to buy some new ones, it would probably be do-able. I too love the look of them. Good luck with your building and send me a note if you use them and let me know how it came out. BTW, there are more video's of me on 'The Uke Box' youtube channel. Enjoy!

Hi Al,
Thanks for your comments. My peg tuners are made out of lace bobbins.
You can find them online. Here is a link:

Hey man. In response to your bridge question, it's a piece of stainless steel tubing and a couple of tubing clips.... Great aesthetic and sounds good.

Al, I'll be interested in hearing about the uke build and seeing photos. I'd like to try it, but I think I'll get a little more knowledge and ability before I attack that monster.

Thanks for the comment Allen. Your builds offer some great ideas for us newbies.

hey al my scale length on the whiskey d-bows are 24.75 scale. but they could be made with any scale length.the dowells start out at a 36 inch length but i usually cut them down after i figger out the proportion of the overall instrument. i usually leave 3-4 inches on either end of the build,but that is just my way it don't have to be cut at all. i use 2 different size dowells the whiskey d-bows have the larger size dowell which is a 1 in. dowell. on some of the cigar box builds i use dowells that are 3/4 in. like the vintage san felice build i,m workin on right now has the 3/4 in. dowells in it. take care al---talk wit ya later.
