New Piccolo design (The Piccoloak)

 

Built a piccolo last summer, and while I liked the look of the body, it was a right pain to bend the sides. Here’s the build log for it over at Ukulele Cosmos http://www.ukulelecosmos.com/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=23326&hilit=piccolo

Redesigned it to make the body easier to bend,and made the top flat to make it easier to join the body to the neck. Kinda based on the old Kamaka pineapple ukes. So far I’ve glued some MDF together for the mould, should have that ready to start bending the sides into tomorrow.
