More progress on the uke. So all of the marblewood bits are shaped and cut and whatnot. I was a little skeptical of the stuff at first just because its not my style normally. But I really am digging the way it looks now. I can never resist a mockup. The top is fir of some sort but I don’t know which. I really don’t think it is douglas fir because I can’t seem to see spiral thickening in the wood. Back braces and strip are glued in and shaped. I tried bending a side today but I am definitely going to have to use a hot pipe with a small diameter extension.
