Delrene is eager to get her new uke and she wanted to have a hand in its making- so today she came to the shop and did some of the finish sanding. I think I will be teaching her how to French Polish soon.
I emphasized that your eye might not be able to see the ridges and rough spots but your finger can tell. I think she is checking her work here.
I liked this baritone that I made for Ron so much, that I decided to make another Kasha baritone, maybe I will get to keep it and play it a little longer. Selling these babies is like selling your kids.
So here is the Walnut neck getting some final shaping. The Bubinga back and sides are seen in the background. I think tomorrow I will try my first Bubinga bend. Wish me luck.
The neck shaped, the top braced with the intricate Kasha tone bar arrangement- its time to glue them together.
