My first ukulele concert size made of tiger maple. Blood wood fret board and walnut saddle plate. Learned a lot for the next build in Koa.

So had I looked first I would have seen this was your first less than a year ago. Well I still would like to know your advice for someone just trying it for the first time. Your lathe projects are wonderful! Congratulations on your bowls and vases.. beautiful
