I'm typically a high-gloss varnish guy, but other options exist!
Let me know your choice, and if you feel like it, tell me why.

FWIW, "could care less" means that one cares enough to care less than he or she does. I think you may have meant "couldn't care less."

I stand corrected! Yes, I meant that you don't have a preference, (as long as it's done well).

I typically like satin finishes, only for the fact that the glossy finishes reflect bright lights and flashes enough to bother me as an observer.

In a low key (living room) setting, without stage lighting, and without flash photography, the gloss finish is just dandy.

If I am paying a lot of money for the ukulele..i would want a nice gloss finish..whichever the builder wants nitrocellulose or polyester..just make sure they know how to apply it correctly..

Well, we'll just have to see about that...
:D

He sure does make some great stuff!

I'll have to hope what goes out there will allow me to at least be favorably compared with Chuck's. I doubt I'll surpass his work, but since I know what the standard is, it becomes easier to shoot for.
:cool:
