Couple more tenors

Post by Stray Feathers »

I have two more tenor ukuleles started. The first was started some time ago, but shelved because I broke the Ovangkol sides in the bender. I finally got organized and found some wood to cut replacement sides out of. It's a little lighter than the original back but will be okay I think.You can see the cracks in the original sides at the top of the photo. The top is Western Redcedar.

The second one is number 9 and is Australian Blackwood. I had bought some nice spruce guitar tops, and a couple were big enough only for small guitars. This one had some bearclaw figure along the centre seam so I decided to use it for this ukulele. The neck was roughed out previously for the ill-fated Ovangkol uke, but will now go on this one, since it is further along and I want to finish it for a big art event in town in August. We'll see . . . Bruce W.
