Got new trombone bell off the 3D printer and tested it.  It seems to work well.

 

Also worked on building a second tenor ukulele to improve the design files and process of putting together to be able to have students and others be able to do the project more efficiently.  Also spent time improving the Instructable to be used by students and others.  Bought 1/2″ pine plywood instead of Baltic birch plywood this time.  It doesn’t work on the laser cutter nearly as well so won’t do that again.

The new shape for the outer form for shaping the side panels works much better.  Also found pre-made fret boards for ~$7.50 which seems like a better option than doing this part from scratch.  Also ordered a different size of tuning pegs which will hopefully work even better.
