    The video shows they process very well. Thank you for including it.

    It looks wonderful. However, from the pictures I would say that the top seems rather thick and heavy. Is that how the lenses work on the camera? Anyway, I love the clean build and the subtle finish.

    That's beautiful! I had never heard of a mezzo soprano ukulele before.

    Both, Ms Bean.
    Thickness : 19/10 mm.
    This red cedar top is made with a soft wood, with not tight fibers. More less than epicea, or african mahogany.
    On one my tenor ukulele, with a little more stronger red cedar top,
    I sanded outer edge aera, to improve top vibrations.
    Not on this mezzo, cause softer cedar.

    See tenor presentation on my blog if you want.

    And two pics joined, one close up on top edge.

    When sanding a wet finish to fill the pores, try working up the sludge (oil and sawdust) and letting it dry rather than wiping it off. After it dries sand it smooth with the next finer grit sandpaper.

    Hey, gerardg, sorry but what is 19/10 mm? Not sure how to read that. Do you simply mean 1.9 mm (.074 in) ? I ask because I am building with this wood now and don't want to go overly thin. Thanks.
