Ukulele Sakonnet got her soundboard installed today. We cut her ‘wobbly’ soundhole, installed her bracing and her soundboard is in place. Next we’re actually going to apply some finish to the inside. Since “Sakonnet’ may be subjected to some unusual changes in humidity we’re going to add a bit of moisture protection to the inside.
So as we said, we’ll add some finish to the inside and install her pickup. Then brace her back and close her up.

Ukulele Sakonnet is actually fairly well along. We’ve bent her ribs, glued in end blocks and kerfing, planed and trimmed her golden Kauri soundboard and Poplar backboard and shaped her neck. She looks a bit like a kit at this point.
We’re also working on the artwork for her milk paint finish. Smile when you play that!™
