I've bent sides!

Fired up the electrical hot pipe and made these: two one piece rims for piccolos, one set of sides for a koa concert uke, and sides for two redonators of ash and English walnut respectively.

The resos are spoken for, one of the piccolos is too. But the koa concert I just felt like making. The wood came from Pete Howlett (all my koa did) and I was going to make a soprano but changed my mind. Maybe someone wants it.

I have gotten a lot better at hand bending. The piccolo rims take me just under ten minutes to make. One of the tricks was (of course) to wait until the pipe is, well, piping hot.

Also a big welcome to my new follower Jim!
