Getting close to the finish now, It is time to do the g on Beth's uke.
When the g is installed it stands a little proud above the spalted maple peg head. I first plane it down with this tiny, but sharp plane, and then sand it the rest of the way.
Now it is where I want it. 'when the finish is applied it will jump, as will the tiger stripe and the spalted colors.
And Torsten's is done and sanded to the 220 grit. Time to bring it up into the sunlight to check for flaws and sanding challenges. Nothing better than natural sunlight for this.
Can you see the rough section on this maple binding. Needs more sanding.!
Next sanding grit will be 320. then 500, and the French Polishing can begin,
