"Noisy Cricket" electric ukulele: finished the new bridge, put a riser block under the pickup, drilled the output jack hole, mounted all the electronics, got her restrung and was finally able to plug in! The sound is unreal; it's so full and natural even though it's a magnetic pickup and not acoustic.
Single cut prototype: Used an angle grinder to remove most of the back side cutout around the neck and then rasps to carve the belly cut. The contours flow great and the gradient in the bloodwood and color contrast between the bloodwood and the ash are as good as I could have hoped for.
Aurora 6: cut out the head stock and glued the wings on. She's now in one piece!!!
