Starting the beginning of September, we will showcase the beautiful handmade 'ukuleles of Artwood member Michael Flaherty. Michael has been making heirloom-quality 'ukuleles for the last few years . In addition to his life-career of teaching woodworking, Michael draws from many life experiences to produce an eclectic mix of woodworking styles and products. He is often known for his unique containers, boxes, chests and furniture items, along with his more whimsical and curious work...functional objects sometimes formed in the shapes of creatures and people.
His main passion now is "Michael's Ukuleles". He builds ukuleles for music-loving customers. For the serious musician, Michael offers custom-designed 'ukuleles as well. He's available to meet with the customer to make design and material decisions for that very special instrument!
Michael will be in Artwood Gallery on Saturday the 6th of September and the 13th from 2-4 in the afternoon where he will be happy to talk to you all about the 'ukuleles!
