Let's see some bridge inlay work!

I just finished a couple of bridges, and I don't usually do inlay on them so I figured I'd give it a go.

Aloha Eric,
As always, beautiful work. Big change from the current bridge design, I like it.

Nice work & adds just that additional level of artistry that we're used to seeing in your work. I'd love to own one of your beautiful creations one day.

I love it. It's a nice touch of bling that doesn't overpower the beauty of the wood and the ukulele itself.

Thanks guys.
I am still doing the other bridge design for the Kasha ukes as well. This bridge shape is for the newer model.

Eric, I must say, you are a true artist. I can only dream of being able to own and play one of your works one day.

WOW! I'm luv'n it big time. Really adds a bit of "umph" flair to an already incredible piece of work. Difficult to put into words but "ornate" maybe too strong a word?

You beat me to it elegant is the perfect adjective very distingtive and appeaing.

Really nice touch there. It reminds me of something my contractor said when he was finishing the baseboard on the house. He added this little bead along the bottom, where the baseboard hits the floor, and just said that this is one of those things that is subtle and has an almost subliminal impact in increasing the appeal. Sort of like a pair of nice heels on a woman all dressed up.

The bridge inlay is exactly like that. A very subtle, and almost subliminal, pair of high heels.

Very nice.

First chance to see those on the big computer screen. That looks like very intricate work. Is it a very time consuming process to do those tiny delicate swirls? I imagine it would be.

See, That's the good part about being on the waiting list... Me (and every other builder) are always improving our work and coming up with new ideas as time passes. I've got a couple more ideas up my sleeve as well before we get to your uke!

Any plans to make a cutaway Tenor with the sound hole on the upper shoulder ?

I can't do a soundhole in the other side because of my bracing. But I have some ideas for a nice little cutaway. It's not super high on my priority list but I will get to it eventually.

Eric, I don't even know what to say. I could start with amazing, but that doesn't even come close. I don't suppose you are looking for an assistant, are you? I could sweep your floors or something. j/k ;)
