I actually had a pretty good afternoon in the workshop but by 4:30 I was fried. I successfully bent all of the binders after breaking a bunch of them in the process yesterday. I had failed to spritz them with water before bending taking the advice of a LMI video. Take my advice, spritz them first and get them nice and wet before bending. Today I had 100% success.
Here are the ukes with their binders and purfling all ready for the next step.
This strange looking device is going to be used to glue down the binding and purling to the ukes. Big rubber bands criss cross the instrument pressing the parts to the uke. You will see a picture of it in action, once I get to that point BUT FIRST
