I'm glad you are able to play it and it sounds good.

This is gorgeous Pinokeeo - great craftsmanship. I used to play, just a little bit - that was a long time ago.

Magnificent! What "voice" is it?

I bought my first uke, an electric, of all things, and find that even the nylon strings make my fingertips numb. This is a problem because I'm an acupuncturist and massage therapist, so calluses are a no go. But enough of my problems!

Your skill and perseverance are remarkable and I hope to see many more beautiful instruments here on Craftster.

It's a soprano uke.

I don't know anyone who works with their fintertips that can play stringed instruments.  My fingers are permanently calloused, so there isn't a whole lot of feeling in them.  I can tell when I'm touching something, but it isn't a strong sensation.

Maybe you could try drumming or play the piano, or if you have strong lungs, try the flute or recorder.  I can't play wind instruments because I have weak lungs, but everything else works for me.

I just got my new gourd book, so I'm off to see what kinds of gourds are ready to be made into something fun.

I entered this at the local county fair.  It took first place and Best of Show.  I got a beautiful black and white ribbon as well as the usual blue ribbon.
