How's it sound? I'm building one with a Port Orford top.

It sounds really good to me. It has great sustain and a warmer tone then my walnut and spruce tenor. I will post a sound sample after it settles in

mmm...That maple looks really nice. Is that ebony or plastic binding?

Looks really nice. Did you go for a more satiny finish on this one, or is that just that it's inside. That last one was super shiny:). Curious as to how you think the different finishes affect the tone.

No it's plastic. My skill level is not up to trying ebony yet

I did Truoil on this one. It seems like it has more volume and more sustain then the ones I have lacquered. But that could be the wood

Beautiful uke. I think I'm liking the maple thing myself.
