Also, as you may have noticed, I don't use spring steel slats and I don't use a thermometer. This is easy and fast, I spend around 15 minutes from start to finish on each side.
But I really like one piece sides, those I make on the bending iron.
The piccolos have fret slots, markers and nut ledge, and they've been sanded smooth.
Robin's new soprano has its neck and back on, and I found a really good fretboard.
And to the left is the soundboard for the Bad Cop signature model. It's gonna be very similar to Robin's, but Bad Cop wants some vulgar inlay...
Sides bent, end block glued, soundhole cut, bridge patch glued, braces cut but not glued... on BaronK's koa soprano. Nag-o-meter's been busted for ages. He needs it.
So, with the concerts finished, a soprano done and these two under way, I guess I'm doing good so far this year.
And as you can see, with 40 ukes between them, the design hasn't strayed that far. (My first soprano below the latest, in the picture.)
