Corn Flakes and Raspberries, Been eating this breakfast since a kid. It must be summer.
The big shop door was open all afternoon as I sanded and shaped the necks on the two blondes. I sanded the tops to 400 grit and put a coat of french polish on to seal the wood from stains as I continue to work on them. The alcohol/shellac mix made the "bear claw" marks begin to show. These are going to be beauties.
This is Glenn's. Big leaf maple body highly figured and a Sitka Spruce top. It will be lovely, and apt to be a cannon.
And this is Alan's A mahogany body, Sitka Spruce soundboard, Honduran Mahogany neck. I have one just like it and it has become my favorite player. Sweet and powerful. He is going to love it.
Here they are together, the blondes are ready for their final sanding before the French Polishing begins. I put a tuner in Alan's just to be sure the peg head thickness was correct. Both these ukes will have gold tuners to match the gold frets.
