How did you learn about Cigar Box Nation?
Poking around looking for info about building CBG.

Build log

This is my first 25" CBG. 

Completed approx 2009. Vasco da Gama Natural Las Cabrillas box. The neck is bowing. I'm considering rebuilding it when I get done with my Christmas builds.

Here is number two, a concert size uke I made for my son.

Number three is made from a Strawberry Shortcake lunch box.  I made this for my daughter because her grampa used to call her short cake.  I bought the box on ebay. She cried... ;)

I made this tenor uke for my son's wife Angie.  Now they play together.  

Number five I call my Christmas Uke. Unfortunately there are no pictures. This was built to order for a friend of my daughter.  She gave it to her husband for Christmas.  Seems as though I am building mostly ukes.

This number 6. Another tenor uke.  Sort of.  It is a three string built to a 17.5 inch scale.  It was my first sale.  

And finally #7.  I am finishing this up tonight to get on ebay tomorrow.  

Well, it seems I've reached a limit. #7 can't be uploaded.  I'll put all of them in My Photos.

Glad you have wfret working. It has been a great tool for me. Have fun with the uke. I'll have to try making one in the future. Would be fun to play.

I have found that drilling holes is easier for me. I tried a carbon fiber rod in my latest bass instead of a steel bar. It's light and just as strong. I've been too lazy and haven't posted any pics of my last 3 builds. I'm always trying new ideas, that's what keeps it fun. Enjoy,

Doug

Mike

All you need to do is enter the scale length in decimal form: 12.875 in your case.

That is how I do all my fractional scale lengths. Sorry I was a bit slow responding to your problem.

Doug
