Good on yer, Steve.

Since it's raining I'm starting on mine today.  I saw you only used 13 frets.  I'm leaning in that direction since I  probably won't ever play above the 12th fret anyway. 

Looking forward to meeting you in person in Hye!

This turned out better than I had hoped.  Especially the sound.  I have another one of these boxes so I will build one for me to keep.

Yes, I'll be at the Texas CBG festival in Hye on November 16th.  If you see me, stop and say "Hi!" I hope to see you there.

Very nice Steven!  My first build was the same Oliva box and even after twenty more builds I still like playing it.  I've been wanting a tenor uke and never would have thought to build one from the Oliva box.  Guess that's going to be my next build.  Thanks!

BTW, are you going to the Republic of Texas CBG fesival next week in Hye?
