    IMHO, this ukulele is a work of art. I love that it is just wood--no paua, no MOP, no ivoroid, etc. Can't wait to get it!

    Here is a quick vid of the shellac, polyresin solution french polish...

    The builder describes it on his site as having some advantages over pure shellac, one of which is greater durability, while still achieving the relative thinness of a french-polished shellac. Who knows how much it really matters in reality, but the results certainly look and sound nice, IMO.
