The finishing process is the most frustrating part of the build. You sand and rub and apply coat after coat of French Polish, and then all of a sudden it seems worth the effort. I think I passed that point today, These ukes are coming alive.
Here is Stu Fuchs's tenor. The east indian rosewood is really dark, but wow does it take a finish.
If it sounds as good as it is going to look both Stu and I will be happy.
And then there is Ron's Baritone. Oh, My, the combination of Bubinga and tiger stripe Maple is lovely, This is going to be the prettiest instrument that I have built. I need to find some more of that neck wood.
And just look at the "bear claw" Sitka Spruce. Is this not lovely?
