Will,

I'm new around here but am planning on being at the Sierra College fair gig this Saturday with my 2nd cbg.  This stuff is a blast.  Is anyone bringing an amp?

Thank you Will.Nope it's a three string reso using uke parts

I spent the morning fooling with the reso.  Got it sounding a little louder now.  The bridge I had was cut away in the middle and I decided that is exactly where the pressure should me max.  So I replaced it with a solid one.  I also temporarily clamped a wood block across the strings just behind the back of the reso to increase the bridge break angle.  It didn't seem to make any difference in volume.

Hi Will,

  I found a cat bowl today.  Do you use the one with the little cat paw imprints?  And the rubber o ring around the base? I really liked the sound of your cat bowl uke.

Today I put the final touches on my 3 tall ship ukes.  

Also, just finishing up 2 dance shoe cases.  These are fancy boxes to carry one's dance shoes in when traveling to a dance venue.

Do you ever build your own boxes?

I may get up there next week.

Enjoy the weekend.

Hey Will,

  I have been thinking about your uke neck joint.  I think it is much simpler and better than mine.

However, I don't have the technology to cut off the neck with a perfectly square cut.  That is my first problem.  I thought of a couple solutions.  The first is to build a mitre box and make it very tight and accurate.  I could even shim up the end of the neck while cutting to get a tiny amount of neck drop, if I wanted.  The second would be to use the compound mitre saw at the tall ship whenever I want to make that cut.  It is only a mile away and the saw is excellent with good sharp blade, etc.  I could put a spacer behind the neck so the headstock would not interfere with the alignment in the saw.  

The next problem would be drilling that hole for the hanger bolt perfectly straight.  I see you have a tool for that.  Maybe there is something like that around the tall ship tent.  

Do you put any neck drop on your ukes?  Do you think it is useful/necessary?  I put a slight amount in and lose about half of it when I string it up.

Have a good weekend.

My plan is to go but we may have company from Ireland in NY at that time.  Otherwise I should be there.  I'll be in San Jose the first week in May.

Thanks for the comment.  My father in law actually gave me the spittoon as a joke.  When he found out I started building he thought he would be funny.  He dropped it off one day and said "lets see you do something with this"  smiled and walked off.  2 weeks later I showed up with the finished product and he was literately speechless.  Made me smile.
