There are always searching questions about bracing patterns. This is the one I use on all my tenors - if this was a concert I'd ommit the centre brace. They are pre-profiled on my disc sander before gluing. The 1.85mm bridgeplate is mahogany because the ukulele will have a pin bridge - tie bridges get a spruce plate. All tone bars are 1/4" x 3/8" and fronts are 1.85mm thick - this probably goes down to 1.75mm after thorough sanding.
