Latest uke off the bench is a Canadian Cedar Tenor. The bindings are tortoise. The bridge and fretboard are figured desert Acacia. I'm not sure what species but it makes ebony seem about as hard as soft pine. The neck is recycled Kauri reinforced with a carbon fibre rod. Headstock veneer is some top notch york gum burl. I left the little blonde fringe/bangs at the top of the headstock.

Beautiful looking uke man. I love the way you did used the pattern of the wood for the head stock.

Looks great. I like that funky shaped heel
How is cedar to bend? I've never tried bending a soft wood before. Any troubles with dents on that cedar?

Nice job. Does it sound as sweet as it looks? Really like that headstock burl.

Really nice Liam. Is that the one that went back with your Sister?

Yep, I'm a bit dissappointed, I was hoping this one would stick around for a while. Unfortunately I was made an offer I couldn't refuse:)
