With three ukuleles almost boxed up, I have selected the wood for #s 135, 136 and 137. All spectacular East Indian Rosewood from a fortunate purchase from a former guitar maker last year. Which would you choose?
I invite the three folks who have ordered these tenors to choose the sets which they like best.Please send me your first, second, and third choice. you know who you are. The first person who ordered will get their pick and so on. I hope each of you gets your choice. They are all terrific sets, I have never had better East Indian Rosewood. Even if you are not one of the three that have ordered a tenor, let me know your preference , always interesting to see different tastes . Comment on the blog please.
I almost made a mistake today. Intent upon boxing up #133 & 134 I was sawing the notches for the back braces and about to glue on the backs, when I remembered I had not yet installed the side sound ports. That wants to be done before the backs go on. Fortunately I remembered, so I cut a couple of pieces of dark colored veneer and glued them as backing patches inside. The grain of the patch is crosswise with the grain of the side, assuring there will never be a split at the side sound port. the sound ports will go on tomorrow and then the two ukes will get their backs.
