I just finished this one. I believe it's one of the best sounding and playing Uke I have ever played.

Diane, I was reading one of your replied to someone and you mentioned the fretting on blues fret of a diatonic scale and mentioned different frets to skip on regular guitar fret board.  If I understand it correctly and I probably do not, will this fretting work for any scale?  I have been using the fret board  chart from CB Gitty will they work for setting these blues ( 0,3,6,7,10,12) frets of diatonic? Oh, and the 0 means no frets until the 3rd fret?  Help me Sonny

Here's my first effort, a cigar box Uke. Already planning my next build.

Thanks Richard...templates are handy, but I have a caliper and Stew-Mac has an online fret calculator for reference...so no worries. I think I am going to revisit my "roots" on this build and go with Wade's suggestion to use t-pick frets. They worked very well on my "Andersen" (long-scale electric ukulele)...I just don't look forward to "dressing" them...thanks again
