Build a Pineapple Uke in Four Days!

Rick Turner, maker of the luscious Compass Rose ukes is offering an opportunity for you to build a uke in his shop:
When: July 11 & 12, 18 & 19
Where: Rick Turner/Renaissance Guitars workshop at 815 Almar, Santa Cruz

Time: 10:00 AM until about 5:00 PM each day, 45 minutes for lunch and glue drying

Cost: $400.00 which includes materials, strings, and fun

I'm planning on offering my "Build a Pineapple Ukulele in Four Days" on the weekends of July 11th and 12th, then 18th and 19th.. I’ll be accepting a maximum of seven students, with a minimum of five. This will be a uke-specific course building a "pineapple" style soprano uke with a Western red cedar top and mahogany back, sides, and neck.

To reserve a position, please send an email to and one of us will get back to you with a confirmation. Phone in the office is 831-460-9144, please leave a message. If you can’t make it, please tell your friends, and I’ll keep you on an “interested” list.

The result is a great sounding instrument!

If this were only a couple thousand miles closer to Memphis, I would jump at the chance...
