I finally completed my Lemmy Tribute Ukulele.
This was a fun project. It's the first time I did this type of carving on a project. I wish I spent a little more time on the carving.
It sounds pretty darn good. I really wasn't sure about how the sound board would workout.

Wow.

Thanks for all of your kind feedback.

Now that I have all these new carved tools I need to think of a new project I can use them on.

Thanks John,

This one definitely stretched my comfort zone but I’m really glad I did it.
