Both of these ukuleles were made with all urban lumber that would have ended up in the land fill if we hadn’t taken the logs.
As I have mentioned on other post, I am fortunate to have access to a Wood Miser mill and kilns for drying wood. It gives me great pleasure to know I had something to do with the entire process of making the instruments from the tree to finished project.
The ukuleles were made as a twin set. They are both made of Spalted scyamore, black acacia, and bunya bunya.
The one on the left has a spalted sycamore body, black acacia neck, spalted sycamore fret board, and bunya bunya soudboard and bracing.
The one on the right has a black acacia body, spalted sycamore neck, black acacia fret board and bunya bunya soudboard and bracing.
Both ukuleles will be donated to auctions to raise money for a worthy cause. The one on the left is being donated to the Carter Center Auction and the one on the right is going to an auction to help support a boys ranch.
