Picking out the wood for the next build of two Kasha tenors for Paul and Glenn. These instruments will be going to Edmonton Alberta, and Mountainside New Jersey. Today I was selecting the wood after beginning the French Polish on the Triplets.
Glenn's uke will have a tiger strip maple body and a "bear claw" Sitka Spruce soundboard. It ought to be a stunner with these woods.
Paul decided on a mahogany body and he also chose "bear claw" Sitka for the soundboard. I am just about out of this rather rare Sitka but just love to work with it. I had one very interesting piece of Mahogany that will make a unique back. Most mahogany is quite straight grained, but this piece has some character. I think Paul will like it.
