It began with a visit from my good friend Pat Madsen. We sat in the living room for a long time talking instruments, music, ukuleles and life. Always a joy to spend time with this fine man and fine musician.
It was a special treat that Pat brought along his Moore Bettah "two feathers". He bought this lovely uke from Chuck Moore several years ago. it is always a thrill to examine such a work of art.
The workmanship on Chuck Moore's instruments is legendary. I spent a long time just looking at the details.
Sadly, I failed to take a photo of the two mother of pearl feathers inlaid into the head stock, Truly magnificent.
Then back to the workshop to work on a variety of builds. Here is Stu Fuchs neck blank into which I have just cut the groove for the carbon fiber rod that will prevent it from ever warping. This is an easy project, Just cut a groove with the router.---
, fill the groove with epoxy and stuff the carbon fiber rod in. Smooth off the excess and let it harden. This neck will never warp out of shape.
Then there was a knock on the door, A ukulele player was there to look at the Bubinga/Port Orford tenor. She bought it and walked away with a new uke and gig bag. The fourth uke I have sold this week. WHAT A UKULELE WEEK. !!!!!!
