    Default Whew. Un-clenched after 3 days

    Never thought one little end graft could give me such fits. Been working on it for three days. *breathing again* It was one of the hardest woodworking tasks I have ever done, 'ukulele or otherwise. I don't think I can even work anymore today. And to think some folks do this sort of thing every day. Wow, heaps of respect for all you daily purflers. Sheesh that was intense. Thanks for looking

    Thanks for the warning. And ya like you said, "heaps of respect".
    Can I ask if it was just that one or are they all intense? ...just want to know so I can avoid it in the future.

    It's small but adds so much. Looks great.
