At one time there was more here, but I realized that I never used most of it. So you'll find links to music chord/lyric sites, and links to sites that discuss building ukuleles (and other instruments.)
Hapa Haole Songs - mostly just lyrics.
PJ's Guitar Chords Tab and Song Lyrics Site - pretty decent selection of pop/rock music.
Ukulele Beatles Fun! - excellent, with uke fretboard animations, sounds, etc. Don't try it with a slow connection.
Ukulele Boogaloo - chords and lyrics, some t-shirts and stuff.
Betty Lou's guitar site - very graphics-intensive and slow, not well formatted, but lots of stuff.
COWPIE song archive - Country and Western, large collection, pop-up and bad html hell.
Guitar E-Tab - rock/pop.
The Guitar Guy - classics/oldies, many transposed, but good stuff.

Information on wooden automatons. Also on my to-do list - a wood steam locomotive valve gear demonstrator.
Is it a rosette if it's just a single strip of wood? In any case, here's how I did it for my first tenor uke. Came out fine, except for one little problem. . .
