I was delighted yesterday to have noted Bellingham musician, Chad Peterson, drop into my workshop for a chat. He brought along a resonator uke that a friend had made for him. Here he is playing my baritone. We talked instruments for some time and I had fun telling Chad about the Kasha bracing system. This guy is a player!!
Been making good progress on Linda's tenor. That rosewood is getting pretty shiny. Also been working on the two new Kasha's . Below, I am planing the sides down to their proper height before glueing on the tentelones. They want to be 2 3/4 inches at each end and three inches at the high point where the back bends.
This little guy for the fine work.
Here it is a few hours later, all done. This uke is ready for its side sound port next.
I also got the tentelones glued to the Bocote uke. By morning I will have two sound ports to install.
