Welcome Bert, if your looking for a related metalwork project i know so of us could use some 7" diameter reso coverplates. You can buy reso uke coverplates but they are pretty expensive ( an i personally don't like covering the actual bridge.
The focus here is on all types of handmade instruments and music. There are lots of helpful builders and players here and lots of Groups to teach and learn. We welcome participation so don't be shy.
