Nice looking uke. Did you take any pictures of the bracing?

That is excellent. Very nice work. I love the headstock. If you have a photo then I'd like to see the bracing pattern.
From the photos it looks like the bridge is larger than I would have expected. That could be an photographic illusion.
How does it sound?

thank you for your kind words. Bridge is actually a standard size bridge, replica of G-String Ukuleles.

I will try get up a video or sound clip soon as soon as im done with the final setup on this build, fret leveling and low action next :)

Beautiful! Whats a good method of getting that burlwood thin enough without it crumbling to pieces?? (and what's it veneered with)?

thank you, this burlwood is around 1.5mm. yes burl crumbles very easy. Make sure you have very sharp tools. under is ebony and white maple.

Very nice. I like how you blended the fret board and soundhole together
