Dave Iriguchi of Iriguchi Ukuleles will present a lecture and demonstration at the Davis Makerspace at 11 a.m. Sunday.

A custom and experimental luthier since 2009, Iriguchi plans to bring several instruments to show how his design philosophy has evolved over the years. His notable ukuleles include a signature keystone shape, hand-carved semi-hollow-body designs and electric archtops with cantilevered fretboards in sizes ranging from sopranino to tenor.

He also has designed and built an electric bass ukulele.

With a commitment to sustainability, aesthetics, playability and sound quality, Iriguchi brings a personal approach to his building. He will have a collection of molds, forms and tools available for viewing. A question-and-answer session will take place after his talk.

The presentation will be held at the new Davis Makerspace building, on the Tim Spencer Alley between Second and Third, F and G streets (just behind Woodstock’s Pizza). It is free and open to the public, though donations to the Makerspace will be accepted.

The Davis Makerspace is a nonprofit community organization. For more information, visit www.davismakerspace.org or http://iriguchiukuleles.com.
