    OH! The humanity! I'm thinking I don't even want to know why...
    I'm not entirely convinced that it is possible to polish a turd. However, if one were to accomplish that feat one would still have a turd, and one all the more noticeable for being shiny.

    As painful as it was, it had to be done. There was just a few small details about the neck that I didn't like. I was fighting and fighting it trying to make it "work". But in the end, a little OCD kicked in and I couldn't settle for it.
    Granted no one on earth would ever notice the things that were bothering me about it but I just couldn't let it go.
    So much for the hours of inlay and shaping time...

    I was wondering how you were going affix the hinge for the foldable "travel" 'ukulele.

    You should offer it to MGM, he'll make a lamp or something and repurpose what could eventually be mulch (hopefully not). Call it "art" and you should get a good price for it.

    Haha, no, it's not going to end up a lamp.
    It's just getting a new neck.
