Concert Ukulele Construction Project

Finishing Touches

This ukulele will be auctioned next year at a school fundraiser, so the appropriate logo was inlayed into the headstock (the school's fox). I filled the routing gaps with epoxy mixed with rosewood dust then pore filled the entire headstock with the same epoxy. This hides any routing mistakes I may have made.

For the body, after fitting the bridge to the top it was time to pore fill the walnut, sand everything and get some finish on it. I went with a simple can of polyurethane.
