"Brian, thanks for the good words. This site is almost useless. Like you say, it is glitchy. Another thing about Doug Fir is, like concrete , it hardens with age. Try putting a nail in a 100 year old Doug Fir plank. Good luck. Cheers, Gary"

"Yea those are looking great Gary! Douglas fir is a tough one, tougher than the commercial white Fir from the big box stores. Sometimes with the Firs, if I don’t check both sides of the planks, I end up with a super knotty one :)"

"Hi Greg, in the photo this uke is 8x8x3 and has a scale of 14 1/2". It's a Tenor. Where the bridge lands is important, so I hope this gives you an idea. The instrument is very loud and when blind testing you would swear it was a real uke.…"
