    So the top was a freebie due to a misplaced rosette (NOT by me)

    I used 2 bookmatched sets of guitar Indian rosewood backs. I got 3 sides (3" x 24") out of one set and 4 uke backs out of the other set (one maccaferri, 2 tenors, 1 concert)

    Cut away insert is movable for custom fingerboard width options.

    I do that same sort of thing with a lot of the guitar sets I have on the shelf. Actually quite economical when you consider how many instruments you get out of a set.

    Thanks Stan! I know you know your ukes so it is quite a compliment

    I got the back glued on today As you can see, im happy!

    In on of these pics it shows me trimming the back braces. I now do this as i had a problem with a guitar of mine where the brace ends pushed the bindings out in dry climates. So now i leave a small cap between the brace end and side instead of just running them through.
