    I like that end graft. It always seemed weird to me that most guys and gals (me included) make a beautiful tapered end graft and then end up blowing a hole for a pickup or end pin. Nice Work Beau.

    That is really pretty. What I like about your work Beau is that you let the wood dictate your designs rather than dictate to the wood what the design is going to be. That is a special talent... Now I am going to shamelessly try to copy the idea. I am not worthy!

    The back view of the bicolour. Note the extra layer of cross grain tassie oak in there. Maybe next time a more contrasting timber.

    This is so true. Most of my ukes have pick ups and my straps have a 1-1/2 wide leather end. This covers up the beautiful end graft which is such a shame.

    That is an absolutely gorgeous piece of bubinga Beau, magnificent!!!

    Thanks- if i know it is going to get a pickup, i always design around that. I actually had already finished this end graft then thought it would look cool to have the sapwood waterfall over the back, SO i re did 3/4 of it.

    I love the first application of epoxy pore filler. It's when I really get a sense of what the instrument is going to look like under finish.

    Wood Quiz:

    I found an interesting board today with unusual figure for its species and almost perfectly quarter sawn. Any guesses?
