one more day for French Polish for the Triplets, they are really looking good, The bulk of the day was spent on the two blondes, Alan's #139 and Glenn's #138. First thing was taking off the tape to see how the bindings look.
Couldn't be better. This is #138. Maple binding on Maple body. The finish will make the tiger stripe pop.
The next job was inlaying a piece of spalted maple into the end piece of each uke. You first must clean out the slot, then fit a piece of wood into it. Once that is done it is glued in and held with tape while the glue sets.
And when the glue sets the piece is faired down and blends nicely with the body.
Now they need heel caps and fret boards. That will be easy. The fretboards are already made, just need to be tapered and the frets installed. These ukuleles are coming together nicely. Being stuck at home has its advantages I guess.
