I made a humpback whale set of three. Depicts the whale's annual journey from Hawaii to Alaska. The first depicts whale and calf in the Hawaiian seas where they give birth. The second depicts whales in mid Pacific as they journey the feeding waters in Alaska. The third of the set depicts the whales breaching with the Alaskan mountain ranges in the background.

The 4th uke is a tiki/volcano theme uke.
Thanks for looking!

Wow, amazing work.

Just the carving is awesome, but the back shows instrument craftsmanship as well.

The whale once are awesome with the 3 piece theme, very cool and great details down to the nut and bridge.

The Tiki carvings are sweet as well, but the 3 piece set just blows my mind.
