Takes lots of clamps to glue the back onto the body. You want to clamp to a flat surface to be sure the uke will come out straight.
Once the glue has set the next job is to trim the edges with the trimmer on the Router. The tape is to set the cutter just a bit away from the uke sides. The tiny difference is sanded away easily.
So now the edges are trimmed and hand sanding is next. This mahogany uke is coming along just fine. Looks like the Mahogany does not have pores of any size, so finishing might be easy.
One of the pleasures of lutherie is admiring the day's labors at the end of the day. At 5:00 I mix myself a martini and observe/ critique the results of the day. A great time to relax, and also to carefully determine what needs to be done the next day.
