With the construction of these two ukes. Today the Baritone peg head got finished, Now only the final sanding and the French polishing will begin.
The final shaping got done while holding the Bari in the parrot vise. Notice the rubber padding protecting the wood from the vice's strong grip.
Then I turned to Stu's tenor fitting the end piece and some black and white purfling. Here it is taped tight while the glue set.
And here is the completed result faired in and sanded. A piece of Koa to match the binding.
Tonight I glued on the peg head plate and tomorrow I will do the final shaping of the neck and peg head after making and attaching the heel plate of Ebony. Then the final sanding of both instruments will precede the French Polish. These ukes are nearing completion.
