Family Photo 2010


January 1, 2010 by Tim

As a nice way to start the new year I have decided to post a “family photo” for 2010. I will do this every year that I have the blog going. 

Family Photo for 2010. Click for a larger version

 From left to right: 

  1. A soprano kit ukulele from Grizzly that i built 2 years ago
  2. My Bushman concert cut-away that  I went to indiana and got from John Hall directly when I visted the Bushman Brewworks
  3. My first ukulele! It is a Oscar Schmidt OU-2 that I painted and tweaked.
  4. The all black sideways one on the left is my Soprano Risa Solid that I bought when I turned 30. waited 3 months for them to finally make a black one for me, and now you can just order it.
  5. The Other sideways uke on the right is the first cigarbox ukulele I made from Papas Boxes. They have changed the design since then.
  6. Bottom left is a 1930’s Richter collegiate soprano that I found at a flea market. Still plays great.
  7. The the cigar box ukulele that I just finished and have been posting about. My Papa’s Boxes Uke kit.
  8. The last one, on the lower right, is a soprano Rogue that I purchased for $17 from Musicians Friend. It was one of the stupid deals of the day. Put Worth Strings on it and it plays really well.

If you have a family photo that you would like to share, just send me a picture with a quick description of each member along with your name (What you want posted)  and where you live (City, State)

Happy New Year

    Great new cigar box ukulele. I thought it came out great. Nice family photo. You have to bring one for Jonah to learn in Michigan.

    A couple months ago I found the directions for making a cigar box ukulele. I went out and gathered up a number of the boxes, determined to make them for my friends and family as gifts. I think everyone should play music and why not on the ukulele!

    This is a really great collection, it looks like so much fun.
    Do you expect your family to grow?

  4. Audrey says:

    When i grow up i hope i have a family as beautiful as this one. I want to acquire a similar collection, but they all must have unique back stories like yours.

  5. Good job! Do you all get well.
