Check out the gourd tenor Banjolele I just finished. It's setting in just fine.

Mr Kent, That is a true beauty of a uke! Love the woodburned celtic knot. Sounds like we could talk for hours about common hobbies. I am a gourd art enthusiasts and had a business selling gourd crafting supplies in the south east. I sold woodburners, saws and dyes until I got tired of toting all my supplies and setting up and breaking down all by myself at different festivals. I just recently picked up the ukulele and attempted to teach myself for 3 months and decided I needed to go to the next level and signed up for private lessons last week.
Keep up the good work. Thanks for posting your pictures. Inspiring, I've got the gourds just not the skills to build my own instruments.

Ooh, just discovered this thread. My husband and I took up the uke a little over a year ago and are having tons of fun with it. We joined a group here in our hometown called BUG (Bellingham Ukelele Group) that meets monthly for jams and has other events throughout the year, including a very fun 3 day camping outing each summer. The neat thing about a uke is that it's easy to learn enough basic chords to start playing and singing along almost immediately and the size of it makes it easy to take along with you just about anywhere. The best thing about the uke is that you just can't help but feel happy whether you're playing it or listening to it!

They say money can't buy happiness, but you can by an ukulele and that is pretty much the same.

Love playing the ukulele and banjolele. Lots of fun and relaxation. They go with our tiny trailers.

Thanks for the kind thoughts. The ukuleles are for my wife. You can see some of the other instruments that I've built in the thread " a cut above". I started with simple cigar box stick dulcimers and slowly progressed as I gained experience. Close inspection would show that I still have a long way to go.
No wonder I retired....Too many hobbies and not enough time. Lol!
Jim
