Shop Updates

Busy in the shop processing the Acoustic Strap Secure and building several new instruments. Will post pictures soon. Most of the instruments will be for sale, one is a donation to the EWU Library annual fundraiser.

Ukulele Progress

Diclaimer: This was the first time uploading a photo from my phone directly to my website. Photo quality and orientation are what they are.
The three ukuleles I’been working on are finally closed up. End wedges/strips are next before the binding goes on, then onto finish up the necks. Two of these will be for sale soon asbthey are done. Check back often for updates, or go to my Facebook page for more updates.

38-SSMini in stock

I finally received a small batch of Mini Stainless Steel Acoustic Strap Secure in US thread so those are now active on the purchase page. Hope to have a new, more reliable manufacturer soon. 
There are still a few of each Met

Manufacturing Problems

Right now I am very low on stock of all Acoustic Strap Secure. This is due to my manufacturer being extremely behind and having some other manufacturer issues. I am currently seeking out a new manufacturer. In the meantime please see the dealers page to find a store near you or an online retailer.
Hope to have this figured out soon and will get all models back in stock asap.

I have a small quantity of Acoustic Strap Secure in stock. The holidays have nearly wiped me out. The only models I am out of stock of at this time are 38-BMini (US thread, brass, mini) and 38-SSMini (US thread, stainless steel, mini.) I will post when all models are back in stock.
New models and other great news coming soon!

Folk Fest 2017

Although I personally didn’t take any pictures this year, I spent November 11 at Folk Fest in Spokane, WA with fellow members of the Inland North West Luthiers Association. Always a good time. Got to talk instrument building with other luthiers and patrons. Handed out a lot of cards and possibly picked up some repair work. 
I had intended to have three Ukuleles finished for the show but had too many other things going on to get them done in time. However, since I did not finish them I took the time to work on them at the show. I hope to have them done by years’ end. Will post pictures of progress soon and post them for sale when complete.
New ideas coming next year so stay tuned!

Shop Upate

Been busy in the shop. Most recently had a few instruments across my bench for repair. Taking up most of my time has been preparing for a Ukulele building class I am teaching in August. 
I hope to be doing more shows, although the next one will probably be Spokane Folk Festival this Fall. 
Soon as I get a few more projects out of the way I plan on building a few instruments at a time.
