I'm stayin right here an makin hay! So sequestering isn't all bad.
Time to put the sides on Sandy's soundboard. The first thing is trimming it to proper length. that Japanese pull saw does a nice job.
Here are all the pieces in the Assembly Jig. Now we need some glue and some clamps.
Oh my !, we sure got the clamps didn't we?
Now lets get Gary's neck attached so that tomorrow we can but sides on his tenor. This is a crucial task if you like your ukulele to be straight.
This is the 'Sunburst', an experimental for me. Mahogany body just got its side soundport and now it is about ready to box up (put the back on).
I call this the "Sunburst" because this marvelous piece of Bearclaw Spruce has an ugly pitch pocket in it. I am going to hide that pitch pocket with the dark color of a sunburst, thus saving this lovely piece of wood. here I am sanding the back side so the back will fit properly, just dragging the uke back and forth over that big piece of sandpaper.
