Here is Olga"s ukulele, a tenor with back and sides of East Indian Rosewood and a lovely top of "bear claw" Sitka Spruce. I have become enamored of the look and sound of "bear claw". I expect this to be a good one. Next will be the peg head plate and nut.
The lower tier of tentalones is now installed on Adam's Sycamore.
We got the sides on Bonnie's uke and now Rick is putting the first of the tentalones on the lower bout. I like the security of gluing on the tentalones to secure the sides.
With the fretboards now attached it is time to refine the shape of the necks. This is the first phase, but much work with the scraper, bow sander and sand paper remains before the neck is judged finished and playable.
With all our mornings work done, and the glue drying, Rick is cutting out the veneer patches that go behind the sound hole. Nice to have them ready when you need them.
