big texas blue #2

big tex blue 2.3big tex blue 2.4 big tex blue 2.2I had a small windfall of Texas Bluebonnet tins from the Collin Street Bakery so I followed up the wee texas blue with a new big texas blue. It is very similar to the first one of these big tins I hammered out in June of 2013. This is the fifth ukulele I’ve built with these pretty tins and it would make a swell duet pair with the wee texas blue while she is still available (hint, hint). The history of the state of Texas plays out on the sides of this whopper and just like on the wee one, the state flower and a rudimentary map grace the lid. Big texas blue has a big ol’ voice to match a big ol’ state
