I hope you meant to say nice looking. : ) 

If so, thanks Rob! I dig your stuff too, your Risa uke is particularly awesome.

 Thanks-but compared to most of the builders here I consider myself a rank amateur.

 Even so,  i'm having fun scaring the neighbors with my latest build, my "Ukuklele for Dummies" book for reference and my horribly unskilled fingerings...  :)

Thanks, Rob.  I have built 10 guitars and 17 ukes.  Mostly doing ukes these days.  Easier to build, play and sell.  I am starting to use Chinese necks and fretboards because they are so damn cheap and the quality seems ok.

You are welcome, Rob, thx for accepting.

I used to post there a lot too, and Ukulele Cosmos but not many of the folks from before seem to be around those sites. Also used to frequent the 4th Peg way back when.

I run hot and cold on building due to the day job and honey-do list...

Thanks, Rob. It's just something I ended up with that wasn't a "normal" uke headstock. You've done a lot of nice work yourself. That's one thing I love about this site...all the amazing creativity.

Thanks for posting pics from the Martin tour. I'd love to do that one day.

Think so Rob!, flatten the graphite rods,so the cross rod do'nt slide, tap the box and sound appears, maybee a cover over the matchbos,Cloth or rosterwire, for finish touch, head phone, speaker or direct in a recording device, Words  above are not (         ) FOR ANY DAMAGE TO ............ but great fun to do whit kids,see there Faces, when the sound come out ! Greeeettssszz A.D

Thanks for the compliment Rob!

Howdy Rob, Thank you for the info about your uke being the same as my idea...and the tips to prevent it from being to heavy. I cleared as much of the access as seemingly possible. This is my first attempt at this style, so far seems everything is going well. Thanks again!

Those are tin can microphones. Inside I have a piezo wired to an output jack. They work great as a harmonica mic or as a vocal mic if you want an old timey sound.
