Tim’s Instrument-Making

Tim‘s been making flutes for a couple of years.  This week he finished his first ukelele and put it up for sale in his Etsy shop, and it looks amazing.

The body is a cigar box; how rad is that?!

I’m impressed by Tim’s attention to detail and the amount of time and energy he spends on his instruments.  Take a look at the flutes for sale; he’s spent hours and hours experimenting with how to size a piece of bamboo to play in a certain key, the size and spacing of the finger holes for precise tuning and playing comfort, and learning how to make them sturdy.

Whether you’re a potential buyer or just checking out the photos and details of how these instruments were made, spend a minute at his shop.  You’ll learn something cool.
