    NEW, YET ANOTHER FUN PROJECT DONE!!

    I didn't know what forum to put this in but settled here. Well, it is a sorta construction project.

    When I was at my daughters this 4th, my 2 year old grandson was watching his favorite movie, the new cars movie. I don't know how much he understands it, he will sit there and watch even with the sound off. Talking with my daughter, she said she wanted to get him a little toy ukulele, because at the daycare he goes to they have one and they told my daughter he loves it. So I decided I'd combine his current two favorite things, well favorite things besides his grandpa.

    I found this lunch box on e-bay and am going to make a little ukulele out of it. Have to finish my other grandson's CBG and my granddaughter's jewelry box first. Hope to get the uke done before the little guy has new favorite things!

    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    GOT R DONE

    Okay, this is how it turned out. Have to get some strings for it next trip to town. The dark object on the fretboard are pictures some of the other car characters that are in the movie.

    This got me inspired to build myself another uke, being my son has spoken for the only other one I have left.
