    Seems to be, I had just wiped the fretboard off with a damp cloth when I took this so there's still some moisture present. I sanded the excess last night and they all look fine now.
    Thanks for checking.

    If you can believe that moving images and sound, can fly through empty space across the universe and be seen and heard on a box in your living room ?.. then you can believe in anything.

    Nice! Are you going to record a sound sample of this one Mr. Timms? Another questions: Is more expensive a uke with Ebony fingerboard or the same uke but with Rosewood fingerboard? Thanks!

    A couple from the group of instruments I'm working on right now. This is the second application of epoxy pore filler.

    An ambrosia maple 8 string tenor with Sitka soundboard, and an Australian Blackwood tenor.

    I have now finished the biscuit tin concert I have been working on. It cam out OK, although of course a tin is not really the best soundboard in the world. For that reason, I have braced the bridge against the through neck inside and put a piezo pickup in and the sound is OK. The break angle on the bridge is a bit shallow, so i may still dispense with the (lovely) brass tailpiece and have the strings pass through the tin behind the bridge and anchor inside. But all in all it is OK.

    A cute little Tahitian style though I digressed from the round soudboard because I made the body purposely narrow to test treble responsiveness ideas and then I had the room and I felt like trying to experiment on a different shape. 345mm scale length 40 lb fishing line for all strings.
