Ukulele No 1 taking shape

Taking shape

Having decided that a few traditionally built Ukes will not go amiss for the rapidly approaching Craft Fair on 10th and 11th September, Ukulele No 1 is rapidly taking shape.

In the image, the neck is attached dry, as it will be removed while the body is finished.

Timber for Uke No2 has been sourced and this will be an all Mahogany affair with a spruce top, and may well be a Tenor. We’ll have to see…
