    I might be totally wrong - I don't make my own- but surely a lot of wood is wasted by routing out 2 pieces of solid wood rather than slicing thin layers off?
    Valid question. I have done it both ways. Truth be known, not a large amount of difference.

    We all need to be environmentally conscious. How do I attempt to be a responsible steward of the earth? I walk to work. I may get in a vehicle twice a month. Seldom drive more than 20-30 miles in a month. I use a composting toilet. I don't fly across the ocean to go to ukulele festivals. Yes I attend one a ways away each year.

    I wrestle with this all the time. We each must do the same. Maybe I am justifying it to myself.

    PS: I have no problem with you asking the question.

    When you look at how our modern world air ships, and boat ships and trucks freight EVERYWHEREt, I can’t see CNC milling locally sourced wood as being a big thread. I like the fact that Bonanza are trying different things with the Uke and with different building techniques. I’m looking forward to playing and perhaps owning a Homestead tenor. I thought the Oreo was pretty cool! Thank you Bonanza for being different.
