    Default Which Sycamore back is your favorite of these 5?

    Iím selecting a wood set for a sycamore build. These are my top five choices. Curious to see what folks like. My favorites are #3-5.

    Number 3 for me, I love the interesting pattern in the middle. When finish is applied it will have a 3D holographic effect

    #3 and #5 seem the most interesting. I voted for #3.

    Yep, 3 for me. I almost bought some Sycamore this week for a future uke build, but I'm trying to make myself focus on one at a time, and not stockpile any more wood.

    2 or 3 because for some reason they remind me of sycamore before it's chopped down and planed.

    I chose 5 because I really like the skunk stripe, plus the flame grain runs all over. The more figuring, the more I like it.
