The first two cherry piccolos so far

As I've revealed before, one of them gets a fretboard. Both are boxed
up and the tops and backs have been cut flush with the enormous
chisel. I'll start a couple more before I continue too far, a bit of
overlap really helps.

Drawings would help as well, and I'm actually making drawings as the
work progresses. Some of my customers have let me know they're eagerly
awaiting these ukes, and one has to be adapted to an existing
briefcase. So length of headstock and body depth will be decided when
I see the briefcase.

Don't forget - if you want some proper work done, I am an accomplished
architect as well as an amateur luthier.

They look really cute! When are you going to start mine? I can't wait!

I hope you're going to take a few days off for Christmas!

Oh, I do have some vacation, some of which I will spend building. As for who gets which - I honestly don't know yet. I aim at increasing the batch before I put names on them.

I'll need to resaw some more wood as well, on my big band saw in my dad's shop.

Snygga former! Var det en som var flush, möjligen?

Jorå, de flesta kommer bli såna tror jag. Men så finns ju nåra greppbräder som kan passa också, så det blir lite olika.
