It cracked radially once we got through it, so it must have started to dry already. I'll put it on supports under the house for a few years.
Just need to get it back to the house, it's still where it stood.

I've kept busy but managed to sand the ukes today. Maybe I'll cut fret slots tonight, if I don't go to rescue that alder log I got from the local farmer.
I give tanning the cherry a shot. Don't know if it's gonna turn out good or perfect.

When they're sanded, I'm tempted to put them in the sun for a bit to darken.
And yes. They are the same size. It's only that the one on the left is cut to shape.

I did bring three half completed piccolos though, they're so wonky and primitive that I could build them anywhere. Here I am shaping the heel on one of them, with a Hock violin knife. You can tell I'm concentrated - my toes are crossed.
Maybe I'll have time to finish one or two. I am building a guest house as well, it takes some time.
