Been awhile since I've started a post as it's been really hectic around the place for quite some time, but a little down time over Xmas and getting some projects well underway allowed me to pull out the camera and take some shots.

I've never liked the size of the kerfed linings that are sized for guitars going into something as small as a ukulele, so have usually made solid linings for my own, or made custom sized kerfed ones. But after a good buy on some ods and sods of various linings on the OLF Swap meet many months ago I decided that many of them weren't good enough for guitars, but just right for ukuleles I picked out a small amount of the stash and after thinking about what I wanted to accomplish and trying a couple different machining operations I settled on using my Stew Mac fret slotting blade to slice these guitar linings approximately in half thus doubling my lining inventory and giving me something much more appropriately sized for a uke.

Will keep me going for the next few months.

Hope that this is helpful to you.
