Thanks everyone. For me building ukes is an extension of banjo uke building, but with a new set of problems and a fresh set of challeges. I am really enjoying it. Thanks again for the kind words.

Nice and clean looking... I love that Tassy blackwood. Never worked with it but I would love to someday... Below info on Acacia melanoxylon for our non-southern hemisphere readers:
