Those bends turned out to be excellent, the sides dried for 24 hours and came out of the molds with little spring-back and were easy to fit to the soundboards. Cazzie and Michael, you will have nicely shaped ukuleles,
When the bends are this good the final fitting is very easy. First I must trim each end to just the right place.
After carefully marking the right place the Japanese pull saw does a quick and easy trim and when both sides are trimmed glue is applied to the butt plat and the bottom edge of there side.
Ah !, trimmed to a perfect fit. Now it is time for the glue and the clamps.
Here are Michaels Mahogany sides glued and clamped. Most of the tentalones are also installed also. These ukes will be boxed up in a couple of days.
