The workshop is looking like a factory here, but the two tenors in the foreground were mailed off to Gary and Sandra in California yesterday and the work table has a little more room now.
I am sanding the back edges of # 135, 136 & 137 on this big piece of sandpaper. Sanding them down so that the backs will fit perfectly on each.
I ought to have a slowly revolving machine to do this sanding on, but for now-just lots of hand work.
Heres one ready for the back, but first we must add the side sound port. I put these in all of my ukuleles, Think they make a big improvement.
Carefully position the guide ring-draw a pencil line around it for reference- and get out the dremel.
Cut the rough hole with a drill bit
then put a sanding disk in the Dremel, and very carefully grind away to fit the oval ring.
After very careful grinding the oval run fits almost perfectly.
Now it is a simple matter to lock it into place with superglue dispensed by this pipette. A little sanding inside and out and tomorrow I can begin to box these ukuleles up.
