I spend the lion’s share of my day (sometimes night too :-( ) in my home-office upstairs. I decided that I needed a little diversion from my computer every now and then and brought a ukulele up to strum and pick when thinking hard or if the J-O-B gets me down – no one can be unhappy while playing the uke, it is physically and psychologically impossible!
I already had the perfect piece for the task: I was playing with some scrap oak flooring on the table saw and I made a modern-ish mount for some tool in my shop that I didn’t end up using. I found it in a box, dusted it off, I touched it up a little, added a hanger, silicone tape and mounted it on the wall under my office window – well within reach while I am sitting at my desk. It looks great and matches my office decor AND I have found my self already absently-mindedly finger-picking while thinking on a problem or figuring out why something isn’t working right.
