I‘ll have to admit, I haven’t really been practicing my ukulele much in the last year, but my fondness for the form is still strong.
So, if I ever do get around to building that tiki-bar in my basement, I’m deffinately going to whip up a pair of uke sconces to frame the bar mirror using these plans that I snipped from the July 1954 issue of Mechanix Illustrated.
Finkbuilt reader Phil points out that the author of this lamp piece, c.c Beck, is another famous
Marvel Comics refugee who ended up working for Fawcett after they absorbed and dismantled Marvel. Here is an interview with Charles Clarence Beck
A little correction, AFAIK neither C. C. Beck (or Otto Binder) ever worked for Marvel Comics, or Timely Comics, Marvel’s predecessor. They drew (and wrote) Captain Marvel stories for various comic magazines (Whiz, Captain Marvel, Marvel Family) published by Fawcett. They were let go in 1953 when Fawcett discontinued all of its comic book publishing activities after losing a plaigirism suit filed by National Comics (DC) alledging Captain Marvel was based on Superman (he was). Apparently, Fawcett continued to give them work in its other magazines after the comic work dried up.
