January’s uke was done pretty quick. Here is the ‘hole’ ukulele.
So January’s ukelele’s namesake is ‘hole.’ As you can see, this ukulele is riddled with holes. The idea came from me imagining holes instead of fret markers and took off from there. The namesake is a pun as well on ‘whole.’ I guess this uke shares a lot with me, it’s so crammed with deafults and imperfections, it reminds me of myself a lot. A little too much in fact. I think everyone has a hole in their lives, and at the moment, I have a lot.
The build process is pretty much the same as the ‘death’ uke but without the use of a ruler. I recommend a ruler.
Originally, I wanted some sort of fibonacci sequence with the holes. It was too hard.
This was funny. The neck was not level. Hence, the weights on that pivot point. I would later find out that the neck wasn’t straight either…
Sawed the neck off and glued it back on. This is pretty much Victor’s ‘creature.’
This was supposed to be grey, or a light grey. The wood stain was a bit too strong.
That’s that. I’ll probably update with a design for February. I have something in mind so we’ll see.
