I ran out of B.W.B.W.B Soprano Rosettes so I had to make some more...No problem just slice some more of them off the tube.

Timbuck,
Nice to see you on UU!
Great innovation - as always. Your machining skills really help things out!
You could make some really interesting patterns using this method (twisting/spiraling material around the tube, etc). Neat!

Yes thats true theres no end to the patterns and colours that could be used with this method...But as I only make one style of uke (up to now) this is the only pattern I require
