Hi, I'm new, so bare with me. It looks like the free plans were scanned as 8x14 or 11x14. When I try to print, I only get 8x10. Please send tips on how to get the whole page. I am building a CB Ukulele and have no clue, but am going for it!

HI John I do not have any photos of the back side I will have to turn it over and take some Its pretty much just like a banjo I left a 3/4 X 3/4 stick on the neck when I made it so it goes all the way through with a wood block I used for a nut on the other side and a long screw holding it all together . I will take some photos of it that mite help was a fun project . I have made several for friends and relatives the kids really like them . it all needs to be cut to fit the shape of the pan . I used a 8 in cake pan I got at the local Dollar store .
I made this one on a whim...followed my instincts. Has a chunk of rock maple been staring at me for over a year, and got the inspiration to turn it into the walking stick bass thru a suggestion from my dad.
No plans done on it, but I do plan on doing more to diversify my line of guitar offerings.

Hi John, I believe that you were asking about slide playing on ukuleles. I regularly play slide on a cigar box baritone ukulele and a "regular" baritone ukulele. I use steel baritone ukulele strings on both instruments as nylon doesn't seem to work well. The cigar box ukulele is for electric use and sounds great. I normally use Spanish tuning in the key of G.
I have built a reso style CBG but I used an upturned pie dish for the cone,
