IT WAS A GREAT TWO WEEKS IN THE SUN but it is always good to be home again in the workshop. I have been whittling braces today and have all the tonebars and braces for the new concert tops ready to go. These are pretty delicate and thin, I am shooting for loud and responsive ukes and want to make them as light as possible. These soundboards need only the bridge brace and the circular brace under the sound hole rosette and they will be ready to glue up. I will attach the necks first, Then the braces, Then the foot block.
