A mock up of another baritone ukulele!

Some pictures of another baritone ukulele.  Shown is the back, front and neck details.  Time to finish and glue the fretboard down.

 

Family of 4 ukuleles!

Here are some pictures of a family of 4 ukuleles. These were made to order. The 2 concert scale ukuleles are for my sisters kids. The 2 baritone ukuleles are for orders. I think that I have finally learned how to finish the wood. I will keep it a secret for now. If you want to know, just ask.

 

Wow! Ukuleles are hot!

Currently we are  building 6 ukuleles.  4 of these are 20″ scale length baritones and 2 will be longer 23″ scale lengths.
 
I have received orders for 2 ukuleles and decided, “why not” and added to the build.  The necks are roughed out, finger boards cut, mounting holes drilled and stain applied to the bottom of the boxes.

Back from the rock and roll swap meet

Whew, finished the 2 Ukuleles’ this morning. Had to install the strings on the way down.

Pictures of Teddy playing at our table. We should have charged $5.00 to stand and listen. Lots of interest and lots of people thinking about building their own. Not a lot of buyers. oh well…
