Last Sunday I spent a day in the Millenium Gallery in Sheffield showing people how I make instruments.
I also raffled off this soprano cigar box ukulele.
Thanks to everyone who contributed. The winning ticket was #30.
Lots of things moving through the workshop at the minute.
Currently I am working on a soprano cigar box uke for the shop, a double neck uke commission and a 6 string guitar with the front from an old lemon packing crate, again for the shop.
Another commission from an Everly Pregnant Brother, finished just in time for the sell out show at the Sheffield Leadmill.
This one was a soprano. The box was dismantled and the top thinned down before being reassembled.
Sycamore neck with some nice reclaimed timber for the headstock veneer.
As usual bone nut and saddle, ebony bridge and piezo pick ups.
Just finished this commission for a tenor uke.
It has a cedar soundboard and the body and headstock have a black stain with a clear gloss laquer.
The front features a painted heart design supplied by the customer.
Piezo pickups and bone nut and saddle.

Pete McKee, Sheffield artist and Everly Pregnant Brothers member was down at the workshop the other day to pick up his cigar box uke. I think he was chuffed.
