As close as I'll ever get to owning a Ferrari! A gift from my son, some years back.

Of course we won't mention that I prefer the descendants of Colin Chapman's imagination over those of either Enzo or Ferdinand and that if I were to get rich I'd get me a nice Evora instead :flypig:
You're just not trying hard enough:

The back side of the baritone ukulele must be shaped to a smooth taper before the kerfed lining can be glued in place.

Wow. The time and care to hand craft a quality ukulele is astounding, not to mention the artistry and craftsmanship required. My wife and I both own and play hand crafted ukuleles, hers is a modern Kanile’a Soprano and mine, an older Ceniza long-necked tenor. Even with today’s technology, nothing replaces the skill and feel of a great luthier. Much respect and Aloha, Tony.

Thanks guys. I appreciate the kind words. I'm far from a master craftsman, however. I have learned that a key part of lutherie is very much about learning how to correct mistakes, of which I still make too many for my satisfaction.
