A tenor ukulele built from entirely west coast wood. Pacific Yew back, sides, binding and bridge. The soundboard is driftwood red cedar that I salvaged off the beach. The fingerboard is local black walnut mounted to a yellow cedar neck. A high gloss finish it buttery smooth and the added comfort for an armrest bevel.

This baritone was built as my base model uke. Local Garry oak back and side with a white spruce soundboard. The rosette is black walnut with a ring of oak for a clean sophisticated look. 

A custom build using local Victoria dogwood for the back and sides , local red cedar for the soundboard. The rosette is made up of 6 different local woods as well. The bindings are a very durable purple heart to give this uke contrast. With a rosewood fingerboard and bridge, bone saddle it has a large amount of projection and clarity. 

Something different from the rest, this is a headless electric tenor ukulele. Lightweight with removable sides makes this the perfect travel performer. The side are made from a three ply of figured maple and walnut. A small spruce soundboard provides a small amount or tone acoustically but it really shines when plugged in. A LR Baggs Five-o preamp ukulele pick-up was a must for the unique instrument.

This bright sounding concert ukulele has the classic ukulele tone. With a 15 inch scale the fingerboard is easy to navigate. Figured eastern maple back and side with a sitka spruce top, a light walnut binding to acent the maple. This customer requested the abalone paw inlay to compliment the rosewood fingerboard.


This is a great affordable tenor ukulele, my base model domestic woods with a satin finish. Black walnut back and side with a red cedar top. This one has a Cambodian rosewood headstock, fingerboard and bridge. 17 inch scale strung with a low G.

This west coast baritone ukulele is built from 98% Victoria wood. Red Alder back and side from a log I salvaged. Red Cedar top from a blowdown in Goldstream Park. Bindings, headstock, rosette and bridge are Yew wood. Driftwood Yellow Cedar neck and Arbutus fingerboard.
