You know that's some beautiful wood when the grain stands out like that even when it's unfinished. Very nice work, sir.

Thank you Pete for posting this youtube clip of the 5 Tenors. I have sent you a pm. You have been extremely decent about my instrument requirement! I will try to organize to get it to South Africa. Congratulations to the other owners! HB

Those look incredible... I think I may be in love with the yew... How do you think a soprano yew uklectic sounds, Pete?

This brings me to another question, something I have been meaning to ask you, but haven't gotten around to it because I didn't want to bother you with more emails...

Have you ever worked with purpleheart wood or would you ever be willing to work with that particular type of wood? I saw that the Road Toad bass ukes have the option and I just love the color.

Yes I have made yew sopranos - very deep rich sound. No I won't work with purpleheart...

Hmm, maybe I'll be looking for a yew soprano a few months down the road then and I'll know where to turn.
