Testing out my new prototype for a wall mount/ display stand to go with my gourd ukuleles. I want them to do their job without being too distracting. At the same time, they need to compliment the piece being displayed. It's a fine balance, but I know I'll get there!

Testing out my new head cam. Now you can watch me work from my perspective! Here I am sanding a neck for a ukulele. Hope you like it.

I want to show off some of these gourgous gourd ukuleles I've been making. It's taken a while, but I'm satisfied with the end results! I've made two styles. The bigger one is a full concert size, and the smaller is a soprano.

The turn around time is roughly one month. PM me If you're interested in purchasing one.

Other than Moby Dick, another book on my q̶u̶a̶r̶a̶n̶t̶i̶n̶e̶ summer reading list is Banjo Roots and Branches. It's a fascinating look into the West African roots of the banjo and it's transition into the modern era via the slave trade and mixing of cultures.

Visit our website for our original Cajun Paddle Guitars. Our newest collection was made completely in isolation with limited paint and supplies and a whole lotta Cajun ingenuity. I hope you like it.

One of the ways you can help support my small business right now is to purchase one of my Cheramie Swamp Music T-shirts. I still have plenty to go around. At only $25 each, these are much more affordable than any of my guitars, so you don't have to break your piggy bank. But you can still buy a guitar if you want! 😂

100% ring-spun cotton for a soft and comfortable fit. These come in either vintage black or poppy red. The sizes run from small to extra large.

I've been keeping myself occupied during this time. So far, I haven't run out of things to do or goals to pursue. I managed to churn out a few new paddle guitars this week.
While I'm not making art, I'm reading. The book I'll be reading next is Moby Dick. Many editions of Most Dick are heavily edited down to make it more palatable and quicker to read. Thankfully, I've got time to read the unabridged version.

Feast your eyes upon this beautiful green stain!👀

In between watching old gameshow reruns🎤 and eating gallons of soup🍲, I've been carving wood and brainstorming new creations. What have you been doing during this quarantine?🦠

Alright, it’s all done! Pictured next to a bottle of Crystal for size comparison. I think I’ll call her T-Covid. That's a little Cajun humor.

Finally got enough motivation to put a hide on this little babe! Have to wait 12 hours for it to dry before I can trim it back. I’ll work on the bridge and nut while it does. Anyone have a name for it?

Put this little buddy together today. Made from scrap pieces from around the shop and, of course, a tiny gourd. I sure am blessed to have things to work on during all this. Should have it fretted, painted and hided by tonight. I’ll post updates and do a video when it’s done.

Don't forget to support artists and musicians throughout this crisis. For many of us, our only source of income comes from the sales of our work, and venues that can host us.

Here's a little update on my progress with the gourd ukuleles. I'm almost there! I just need to streamline the process and do some fine tuning.

This past sale was so successful that I'm going to extend it for one more week! Get 10% off with coupon code "save10". Seriously, get it while I've got it. Each guitar is hand-carved and unique, and I'll never make one exactly like it ever again. You don't want to miss out on this!

Look at these gourd ukuleles I worked on during Mardi Gras! Check out the rumps on these ladies!

I seldomly make these because stretching the hide over them can be stressful if all the factors aren't just right.

Love those Cajun slides.
