    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.

    Ken, maybe it's the photos but the mahogany and koa ukes have a similar golden tint which I like. Are you using dyes or stains to do this? Thanks Mike.

    I second both. Does the knob set the bridge location or provides the clamping pressure?

    Knob is for clamping pressure.

    What I'm looking at is that lovely finish. I see you didn't hurl this one on the shop floor. Perhaps your lovely and talented assistant should get a raise after work like that. Very nice indeed.
