Extreme Curl Satin Box Tenor Uke

Post by Allen » Thu Oct 11, 2018 4:56 pm

First time I've worked with Satin Box, and was pleasantly surprised on how it works. Even with this amount of curly figure I managed to bend the sides without any trouble.....though my bum was puckered up to start with.

The bindings are curly Blackwood and Ringed Gidgee for fret boards and head plates. Saverex and Thomastilk-Infeld flat wound stings.. MISI Air pickup system and finished in high gloss polyurehtane.

Hi Allen,

Another beauty!
What is the top wood?
I have some high curl Satin Box (did you get yours from curly?), and you say it worked well? How do you bend it?

Thanks,
GregL.

Cedar soundboard.

I hand bend everything no matter what timber, and then set the shape with blanket and solid form. It was pretty easy.
