Thanks Sammy! I think I have about 16-20 hours into this one - maybe a little more. I had some troubles with the epoxy resin and had to drill it out and redo it three times before I got to a happy place. :)

Great work mate, I'm gonna have a baritone one day. How long did it take you to make it? cheers

John - Thanks!  I cut a whole pile of thin strips from maple and markote rough stock a while back. Now I just pull out a handful of strips to get to the width and appearance I want for each neck. It's a good time saving process - I only drag the table saw out to the yard to cut long pieces once every couple months instead of once for every guitar.

Professor - Thanks!  Happy to shoot some closeups and show how it's made - which parts are you most interested in?

Nice sound, nice uke and nice playing. The laminations on the head are particularly appealing.

Sounds great. Some up close pics would be great too,

Thanks Uncle John and Wes!  I keep "picking away" at playing, but I've got a long way to go still. :)

Wow!  Nice uke and it sure sounds good in his hands.

Thanks!  The box struck me as having a classic beach feel, and the size was a good fit for a uke. I used a shell in the knob and crushed shells to make the fret markers to keep the theme going.

Has an island feel about it. Nice!!
