always a fun moment when a ukulele gets its back attached. the sunburst got its back today.
Now the edges will be trimmed, and routed to accept the binding.
Here is Gary's uke with its sides firmly attached.
Before the tentalones are added to the back edge, it is crucial to measure and confirm the heights of the sides. I want 3 inches at the high point, tapering to 2 3/4 at either end. Otherwise you might have a lopsided ukulele.
Now that the sides have been planed down to be perfectly equal, we can glue on the tentalones.
