I had little time for the worksop til this afternoon, but made some progress on the two new tenors. here is the Redwood top for Kent's tenor being glued together.
The Sycamore tenor will have a single piece Western Red Cedar top.
You want to carefully lay out the sound hole location and how it relates to the fretboard and the rope decoration that encircles the sound hole.
Here is the Redwood top now glued together.
And now the Sycamore back is in the clamping system. Wow what spectacular wood this is.
I almost finished sanding down the East Indian Rosewood sides for Kent's uke to bending thinness, but not quite. I will need to take it down to about .o85. they are sure looking pretty.
