Ukulele #3: Back and neck install

12-07-2018 09:58 AM by Fchilly | 2 comments »

I sanded the uke and laid out the bridge location and installed it. This was very easy with the fretboard already glued in place, and the back not installed yet. After shaping the braces and prepping the neck joint i was able to move on to final installation of the remaining components. Before glueing the neck or back, I set my router a tad shallow and cut clearance for the back’s binding just in the area my router wouldnt reach later rightnear the neck. I glued the neck into place a...

Ukulele #2: Binding and catchup

10-16-2018 07:51 AM by Fchilly | 5 comments »

After a cider or two I decided I had enough confidence for an attempt at the binding. I set up the trim router to cut about an 1/8×1/16 step for a Koa binding. I relied entirely on CA glue to attach this, and it turned out very nice. I havent decided what to use for the backside binding, but i’m considering a maple/koa/maple contrasting strip. I’ll keep my options wide open. The saddle and nut just arrived from amazon, this means I can continue on the neck and the bridge which I’m ...

Shadows of the patterns?

08-03-2018 12:10 PM by FancyChip | 2 comments »

Everything on our earth has its own shadow, and it, its forms, depends on both the angle of the sun’s fall and the cloudiness of the weather, and so on. So I thought, why the patterns couldn’t have their own shadows? Well, we just could imagine it. On the photo is an example of a “shadow.” It does not have to be triangles, it can be other shapes, or just a line on the right, where a shadow is, can be just thicker than the line that is on the left.p.s. In the case of a ...
