To the right is the back, and below are the
sides. I am using some cherry that an Internet friend gave me
a while back.
Here is the side bender that I am probably going to build,
as it looks really, really simple to do --- just some plywood
or MDF, closet-pole dowels, some bolts and wingnuts, and some
copper sheeting (I'll probably use aluminum). (I got this photo from a ukulele forum.)
