    Very interesting timeless original design, it's hard to tell if this uke was build in in the fifties or present time. I like the shark tail headstock and the minimalistic bridge.

    Simple timeless design executed well... Just cut those string whiskers off the tuners and it would be perfect (just my little obsession). I use fingernail clippers. Nice work.

    Beautiful work Gerard! Can you tell me where I can get instructions for using Danish Oil with sand paper? Could you briefly describe the steps you use? Thanks.

    LIBERON superior Danish Oil is perfect for me.
    Tamiya sand paper only.
    Twice same grit with 24 hours drying time between each.
    #400 - 600 - 800 - 1000 - 1200 -1500 - 2000.
    One week drying time after latest application,
    and polishing.

    See latest pages on my blog.

    Ok for you ?
