After a few months rest...I'm back building again..starting off with a small batch of 6 sopranos ;)...Today i've been fitting kerfed linings.... So that these will fit nice and snug to the ukes without breaking I like to bend them first on the hot pipe...while I was at I got out the ipad and made a short video of how i do it :D See here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=igefP_h7Nh8

Ken, I used to do that until I found wood that works. I now use Honduran mahogany, kerfed on the flat sawn side and it bends perfectly with no cracking.
